Suspensions for the balcony with a Frosta stool

Everyone knows the famous Frosta stool, and most of us have bought it at least once. For the modest sum of 12 euros, this stackable birch plywood seat can be recognized by the elegance of its curved legs. And if instead of assembling it by screwing its four legs to the round seat, we screwed each leg against a wall of the balcony to hang suspensions? Hanging at different heights, these curved wooden supports seem signed by a great designer ... for 3 euros each! Tip: Recycle the seat by creating a bedside table with another Frosta stool.

A mini-garden with a Raskog service

Ultra-practical, the Raskog trolley from Ikea in steel with epoxy coating allows you to store a multitude of accessories in the kitchen, dining room, bathroom or office.

To do this, simply accumulate pots on each of the three floors, or spread a layer of agile beads and a layer of soil directly at the bottom of each bin. In case of extreme cold, this small garden on wheels fits easily indoors ... Tips: Favor hanging plants in the top rack and varieties adapted to the shade in the bottom rack. Also ideal for creating a mini-vegetable garden at child height.
