Undoubtedly one of the cooler IKEA hacks we've seen in a while, Brandon from Singapore takes 2 IKEA FROSTA stools and turns them slick speaker stands designed for bookshelf speakers improperly sitting on the floor - something in the audio world that'll give you not just one, but two wags of the finger.
- 2 x IKEA FROSTA Stools
- 8 x IKEA dowels
- Some rope
Basically, you'll need 4 FROSTA stool legs and 4 dowels for each speaker stand. Simply stick four of them together, using the dowels to keep the speaker from slipping backwards and to prop the stand up to reduce the aggressive tilt angle.
Glue would probably be a sleeker alternative, but since there are holes already in the front, you can use similar colored rope to tie the pieces together and to cover the pre-drilled holes.
For the curious, those are the AudioEngine A5 speakers
in White ($350).
