DIY a pair of cute plant shelves

Plant shelves tutorial IKEA FROSTA hack

Medina shows us how to IKEA hack a pair of cute plant shelves from the ever popular FROSTA stool. One stool yields two shelves.

Materials for DIY plant shelves


All you need to do is to cut the FROSTA seat into two. Then make a hole in the center to fit your pot. It should be large enough to fit but not too big that it’ll slip out.

Next cut the FROSTA legs and attach them to the semi-circles. These become your shelf brackets.


Lastly, secure the shelves to the wall with suitable fixings.
