I have always been a fan of the site IKEA Hackers, so whenever I go to IKEA (or even other stores) I'm always on the look out for materials I could repurpose into something else.
Last week a friend and I went to IKEA to look for materials we could use to make a dollhouse (you read that right ^^). Unfortunately, we didn't find anything that suits the dollhouse design we have in mind. :( We did however found these Blanda Matt bowls that had a really round bottom. Usually bowls are flat underneath to make it more stable, but these Blanda bowls were really round with just a small flat part. I thought this would be perfect for an egg chair! I got one 8" Blanda bowl and one 5".
Here is my finished product. ^_^
Doesn't it look very mid century? ^_^
The base for the chair is the base for the IKEA Tolsby picture frame. Then I sewed a 7"diameter round cushion and tufted it by sewing mini buttons on it. The legs for the table are ends of round wooden chopsticks.

Enjoy! If you make one I would love it if you can share it on My Facebook Like Page! Thanks! :D
