DIY a Coat / Hat Stand from Ikea’s Frosta Stool
Recently, I made a coat hanger from two Ikea stools ( Frosta ) following the plans posted by the designer, Andreas Bhend. He was so generous to share not just one but three designs that can be made with the Frosta stool. There’s a wall shelf that reminds me of a subway map, a coffee table with a uniquely shaped table top, and a coat hanger as shown below :
It is not a difficult project. If you can measure and drill, you’ll be fine. The plan with the different height of the branches is very handy. You just build it upwards with the next height as the guide. There is a tiny bit of sawing done at the base.
All the materials/screws needed are in the box, except for the 5 Ikea pencils which are used as pegs.
This is how mine turned out :
thanks ! I didn’t realize that using the power drill was so much fun 🙂
Many thanks, remake is the biggest compliment to me 🙂
You are so creative! Stools into cloth rack, who would have thoght ? 🙂
I had these stool and I really liked the material and the different parts of it.
So I decided to try to make an other furnitures with it.

The table design is my favorite , I may have to learn to saw ( in a straight line ) xD
You are soooooo gifted! You make it look easy too x
