Anna's Frosta "After"

I recently had the pleasure of scrolling through Anna Dorfman-Stark's Door 16 blog after a long hiatus and was blown away again at how great it is. For those who love "How To's" and juicy, satisfying pics of an old thing becoming a shiny new thing, this is for you. The project I want to highlight, however, is one that I've been working on as well - The Frosta Hack - but Anna's done the best job I've seen yet...

She's taken a $13 Ikea Frosta stool and "upgraded" it into a much nicer faux-Alvar Aalto stool 60. She does a beautiful job and gives you really clear instructions. It will make you want to do your own this weekend. :-)
