Before & After: IKEA FROSTA Stool Turned Bedside Table

IKEA's FROSTA Stool has become a staple item for the retailer. Why is the design so popular? Probably because they're incredibly versatile as they can work in a living room as easily as a child's bedroom; they're stackable so they can provide a bunch of extra seating on the fly without taking up any room; and, at $14.99 each, the FROSTA is super affordable. But that's only when we consider using the FROSTA as a stool. Add a lower shelf, and it elevates the little workhorse into something new. Christine shows us how to do it with a piece of wood and 4 small brackets.

Not only does this hack provide extra storage area, but it also adds solidity to the FROSTA's construction. Here's what it looks like after its transformation:
