I tried that set but it was difficult for me to modify it. Can you give me more hint?

Well, you want the fat Cantor set to be the boundary of the set you want.

Every step you leave out some open intervals. Now let V be the union of the open intervals you leave out at the odd steps. Take [itex]\overline{V}[/itex] to be your set.
