Simple IKEA Trolsta table turned into a vintage pouf

Many pieces of furniture from IKEA are the subject of changes. It’s mostly because of their simple and versatile designs. Today’s star is a Trolsta Table. This lovely side table already has a simple and versatile design. Transforming it into something else was an easy task. Given its size and shape, the table had the necessary configuration to become a pouf or stool.

Moreover, because of the design and shape of the legs, it was clear that the pouf would have a vintage look. The Trolsta side table is in fact a modern creation that was designed in 2012. It has legs with undulated lines and a compact shape. In order to turn this table into a pouf, all you need is some fabric, preferably something that would go well with the whole vintage look, some foam, nails, glue, scissors and a brush. The first thing you need to do is glue the top of the table and attach the foam plastic. Make sure it sticks.

Next, measure the top of the table and decide how much fabric you’ll need. Then attach the fabric to the table with a stapler. Use decorative nails for a more stylish look. As you can see, this is a very simple project. It’s something that you can do in the weekend and you don’t even need many supplies. You can use any type of fabric you want. Also, you can preserve the shelf. It’s a useful element and you can use it to storage all kinds of items from books to bags and anything else.{found on design-remont}.
