Description: I wanted a window seat in my spare room that could double as spare stools for when visitors come around.
With limited space, the Solsta Pallbo stools were small enough to do the trick. I realised their shape and colours (2 dark grey and 3 natural) made them ideal for turning them into Minecraft (computer game) blocks for added interest.
To achieve this I used fabric paint and a cardboard stencil to replicate the pixellated design on one side of each stool. I cut up a green Hampen rug for grass to top the soil blocks.
