Introduction: Storage Space in a Solsta Pallbo Footstool

Make the most of some old Ikea footstool and gain a little storage space

Step 1: Materials

You'll need:

-Your old Ikea footstool
-Some wood scraps (I had a wood panel 1 cm thick)
-White glue
-Staple gun
-Fabric of your choice
-Nails or screws

Step 2:

Undress your foostools and cut the tiny legs. Keep the legs, you will need them later.

Step 3:

Turn them and you've got two boxes

Step 4:

Cut a piece of wood panel to use as a lid. Fix with screws the tiny legs you save from step 2. This will prevent the lid from falling from the box.

Step 5:

Now upholster the box with a fabric of your choice. The corners can be a little tricky.

Step 6:

Then glue the foam sit to the lid you made before.

Step 7:

Now it's time to upholster the seat

Step 8:

Add some wheels to the bottom. These are Ikea's Slugger.

Step 9:

Check everything is correct...

Step 10:

And now you've got two mobile footstools that can be used for storing whatever you want to.
