9 fun IKEA stool makeovers

Flisat stools Ikea hacks

We love a good IKEA hack, a little imagination and you’ll soon rock your own unique piece. Today we’re looking at IKEA stool hacks. Take one humble stool and add a little touch of DIY magic for a pint-sized seat that’s as individual as your kid.

We love the pop of colour that’s been given to the FLISAT stools via Ikea (pictured above) with the easy addition of the STICKAT stool cover, Or get creative with some padding and fabric to make a wonderfully playful, squishy seat to suit your own decor style.
