Who doesn’t love Ikea? We are huge fans of this Swedish shop because you can get great style at very affordable prices. What makes this shop even more special for us is how so many of their pieces can be transformed into something unique.

You guessed it. We’re talking Ikea hacks today, and more specifically Ikea stool hacks. Ikea has a range of gorgeous stools that can be turned into something even more special with a little imagination. Some of these hacks involve just a tin of paint to dress up the stool while others are more involved.

We’re loving the colour treatment the Flisat stools have been given in the top picture. With a little corduroy fabric and some padding, these stools look so great. Here are more of our favourite Ikea stool hacks that you can try out for yourself:


We love how a coat of bright paint has transformed the Bekvam stool. And we adore the idea of using the colours to mark out each kids space. Simple and clever!

Project Kid gave the Flisat stool a dose of serious cuteness with some paint and some old wooden blocks. The result is these animal stools which are so playful and fun.


Next, we have the Frosta stool which has been given an adorable twist by painting on sweet little faces. We also love the touch of paint on the legs which finishes off this stool update perfectly.

Here is another Flisat stool hack. We love how one humble stool can be turned into so many different things with a little imagination. Here we have simple bunny stools which any toddler would love!

This is the Bekvam stool again but this time it has been painted white to match the kitchen and has been turned into a very handy and safe kiddy learning tower.


Last we have the Frosta stool again but this time it’s been turned into a fun chalkboard using chalkboard paint.

Which is you favourite stool hack?
