I love DIY projects and IKEA hacks ! Recently I went to IKEA, and let’s be honest, I went quite mental.
I can almost remember my hubby sighing with despair when he wondered: “Do we need all those stuff?”
“Yes of course, love. We DO. Load the car now.”
That’s the thing with IKEA, everything is awesome and there is absolutely no way you come back home with empty hands.
But I also like having unique furniture. So here comes my passion for IKEA Hacks!
So recently I decided to hack the little FLISAT stool and I’m super happy with the way it turned out. My little one just loves it.
IKEA items used:
- FLISAT children’s stool
- ÖVERALLT trivets
- IKEA brush
Other materials and tools:
- Paint color
- Two screws
- Electric drill
- Epoxy glue
IKEA FLISAT children’s stool hack – step by step
Assemble the FLISAT stool. You don’t need any tools. Can’t be easier.
Use a pencil and ruler to trace a straight line in the middle of the cork trivet before you cut it.
Use a hand saw to cut each trivet where you marked it. For a nice result it needs to be perfectly straight.
Make a mark on the stool where you gonna place the smaller circular arc.
The smaller arc is going to be screwed on the stool top and glued. Use a drill to pre-drill where you are going to screw it.
Paint each arc with the colors you want to create a nice rainbow!
Glue the smaller arc with epoxy glue. Take care, it dries super fast!
Screw the smaller arc on the stool top, and then glue the 2 others arcs on the stool. Glue each arc one after the other, using the epoxy glue. Let it dry for an hour. Your rainbow IKEA FLISAT stool hack is done!
