the ottoman.


I may have a new favorite home-made item in the house. Presenting the ottoman!

I have been wanting to make a tufted ottoman out of an old coffee table for a really long time now. Finally the perfect table came up on Craigslist, and it was time to get to work.

I might post some how-to details, since I used three different tutorials and pulled info from each one, but for now I need to go finish the other two corners! This post is actually helping motivate me to finally tackle that last step.

You are VERY brave to have a white ottoman. I have to say that I thought it was a play on words like the "Otto-man" or something. :)
I can't believe you made it (yet I can). it looks AMAZING.

Looks GREAT! I would never have guessed that used to be a coffee table. And don't think the name pun slipped by me for a second. :)
