Every renter knows that IKEA’s ubiquitous nature cannot be fought. It’s that convenient shortcut most of us take at one point or another. Fortunately, there are entrepreneurial souls out there, who can help us to embrace Swedish fast food of furniture in a new and exciting way. This particular IKEA hack belongs to Andreas Bhend and allows us to built three original items from a humble Frosta chair. The redesigns include a wall-mounted shelving unit, coffee table and a coat rack. Called Frosta X, Frosta Y and Frosta Z respectively, the items do require some power tool action. But the result is well-worth the elbow grease. I also love the humorously drawn instructions. Watch the stop motion video to follow the process.

I really like your pieces. It’s amazing what you did with such a simple furniture as the Frosta stool.
