2 x Frosta into a dress hanger

Materials: 2 Frosta stools, Blecka hooks, wood, jigsaw, drill, screws

Description: I was looking for a birch self standing dress hanger, but Ikea has unfortunately has little choice… so I decided to hack Frosta stool, inspired by previous hacks seen in this site.

I simply mounted inside-out the legs of the first stool, inserted and screwed a 140x4x4 cm wood stake; on the top of it I screwed the other four legs; I added 4 Blecka hooks; from the seat I cut 4 “slices” and mounted them as coat hangers….TA-DAAA!

  1. Is the base wide enough? It looks like one heavy coat could flip it over.

      I tested it with 3 winter coats and had no problem. I decided to screw the round base below the bottom legs to add stability, because I had the same fear. This trick helps lowering baricenter and gives stability to the whole construction. Serena

    Very clever and very attractive. Frostas are so versatile, too bad we can’t get the stateside anymore.
