DIY Ottoman

Hi there,

I love window shopping, I can spend hours in furniture and consignment stores.I often visit high-end stores like Pier One Imports and Bombay but just to get inspiration. If You need to search online Wayfair and West Elem has the best collection.

I wanted an ottoman like this but its really costly, I don’t want to pay $300-400 for it when I can DIY.I had a coffee table in my garage for a couple of years.I thought it was a perfect size. Sorry for the bad and blurry picture I did this project a long time ago so had no idea at that time I would be writing down about it on my blog.

I wanted to remove legs but it had been glued and attached to the base.So no choice, I sanded it first, wiped down. Applied 2 coats of gel stain and dried it between coats about 12 hours.

Now fun part started, I Used an accent rug gifted by a very nice lady.I thought its perfect for this project.It’s actually a wall hanging type small 4×6 rug.I loved the colors and mirrors.

I also needed foam and batting. Keep in mind foam is quite expensive, Use coupons whenever you buy it.I used my Micheal’s craft store 50% coupon so it cost me almost half..scored..!!!

I simply glued the foam with the base of the coffee table with fabric adhesive, allowed to dry.Now attached batting and fabric or rug and stapled it down to the base.

(I re-writing about it, I don’t know how the content disappeared for no reason.)
