I’ve been drooling over the fashionable ottomans displayed in almost every home and furniture magazine, but their price tag left a lot to be desired. Luckily, Pinterest is a great go-to place to find DIY…anything. After reading several blogs about turning a coffee table into an ottoman, I decided to jump on in and make one for myself. Let's get a little crafty!
Tools you need for the project:
Sturdy coffee table
Sanding block or sanding sheets
Paint (if you want to redo the legs)
Electric knife or serrated knife
Upholstery Spray Adhesive
Button kit (if you are tufting the ottoman)
Taking a cue from the cutting table at Joann, I used an electric knife to saw off the pieces I didn’t need. It was super easy and fun.
This fabric however incorporates a touch of green which ties nicely with the kitchen, but introduces a new accent color, shades of blue. It’s perfect! I love the bold patter because it’s not too girly, it’s the right mix of modern and funky that I think Jim will like as well. (He’s seeing it for the first time right now on the blog…surprise!)
Total cost on this project was $120.
Total time for this project was 5 hours.
