After reading about this project on one of my favorite blogs, Door Sixteen, I had to try it. This is the before FROSTA stool from IKEA.

And this is the after. I followed the same steps as Anna. First, I made a template in Illustrator to figure out where to put the legs (I used 3 instead of all 4). Then, Josh drilled pilot holes for me and we screwed in the legs. Lastly, I painted the top glossy black. Doesn't it look suspiciously like an Alvar Aalto’s Stool 60? Instead of paying $285, I made mine for $18.
