HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED FOR THE STATION:
TROFAST frame (we used solid pine)
Plywood or cardboard, large enough fo2r a door
4 BRATTVÅG legs
TROFAST storage box
2 JANSJÖ LED lamps
2 HUGAD curtain rod corner connectors
2 long keys
STEP 1 Start by turning your frame upside down. Mark where you’d like to place your legs. Drill and screw them in.
STEP 2 Measure and cut your plywood or cardboard to create your door. This will be the front of your station, so start tracing where you’d like your robot’s eyes to be.
STEP 5 Now get as creative as you want and give your robot some unique features. Our guy has a nose made from a dust brush (perfect for future cleanups), which we mounted with magnets that we glued to the door and screws that we screwed into the handle. Attach the curtain rod connectors for arms, lamps for antennae, and keys for eyebrows.
STEP 6 Now that your robot is all taken care of, move on to your game of toss. Measure out your bullseye by marking out circles and painting them in alternating colours. Place your bin beneath and start tossing (and recycling).
STEP 7 The most important part: Turn it all into a friendly game of toss, and mount a clipboard to keep score of how many recyclables you each get in. Game on!
We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
