so i got a foot rest from ikea for my bedroom at home, except the feet didnt look as good as i thought :\ so for a while i just had them off and set the footrest on the ground, except it was then a little too low and was not comfortable, and looked awkward.

so if those legs didnt look good.... then how about... NO legs! Smiley

a family friend who does interior design work inspired the idea for this, and my father did the actual construction, but i did all the measurements and finishing touches Smiley

so now... the magically floating footrest!

no flash

construction:



i bought an extra cover so the fabric would match, cut it down and stapled it on:



pictures dont really do it justice, it looks really amazing in person, but you get the idea Smiley
