Materials: Solsta footstools

Description: Some time ago, I bought 3 SOLSTA footstools. I wanted to use them as a small couch, but unfortunately they where way too small and unstable to sit on.

I didn't had a coffee table yet, so I decided to make a coffee table from the 3 footstools.

It's a very simple hack: You only need to remove the cover and the foam.

As you can see in the pictures, I also unscrewed the top off 1 footstool, so I can easily reach to the things underneath it.

(the black 'plugs' belong to an IKEA MANDAL wardrobe. (discontinued))

I hope you like my first IKEA hack. :)
