Frosta for Rena

Sometimes people are that sweet, you just want to bring them self made presents. For Rena I did before. And I loved to see that this former present was even in use yesterday!
She gave a housewarming party. To make her spacious new living a bit less empty I thought it would be nice to bring along a small piece of furniture.




This great styled idea inspired me. The felt was bought at Wernerkinck in Delft in thicknesses of 5, 3 and 1 mm. Colours were chosen in combination with Rena's Eames' chairs. The legs of an Ikea Frosta were shortened to make it more suitable for little kids. One of them is growing in Rena right at the moment :). An option is to reassemble the legs slightly inwards, I might do that next time. The thread of the crosses went all the way through drilled holes in the seat (thanks F for doing this drilling part of this little project). There was no need to use adhesive foil to fix the seat cover. The funny part was Rena's reaction: Oh, I know where to put it! And she placed it next to her red rocking chair right away.
There're so many possibilities to design such a stool. Go ahead and make your one! It gives you energy!

This is SO great. I really like your stylish dot! And the idea to make it shorter for the kids sound great, too.

Geweldig!!!
Het is een schot in de roos :0)
En je stijl pakt me keer op keer!
Je oog voor detail en hoe je met heel weinig heel veel doet is integrerend! Ik kijk al uit naar je volgende project.

Inderdaad! Het ziet er fantastisch uit. Ik zou het zo kopen als ik het zag staan. Maar handgemaakt met liefde is toch nog stukken beter.

Wauw, wat mooi! Dit ga ik zeker doen, ik wou alleen dat ik het zelf bedacht had ;-). Prachtig!

It's beautiful!!
Yesterday I discovered your blog and I loved this ikea hack!
I own a frosta stool and I've been looking for a pillow for it for years.
I also have the house full of felt because I love it.. so I immediately did it!
I admit I copied it (I only changed the colors) but I'm so glad I finally found something for that stool!!
Thank you so much for the great idea!
May I ask you another tip? Where do you buy those beatiful fabrics?? I live in Italy, but maybe you can suggest me an online store.
Thank you
Elena
