DIY Ottoman

Before:


Steps:
1. sand, prime & paint the table.
2. drill holes through the table for tufting.
3. position foam & fabric on top.
4. tuft buttons through holes we drilled earlier.
5. pull fabric and staple to the bottom of the table.

After:



Even baby approves :)

Budget Breakdown:
table - $20 on Craigslist
sandpaper - owned
primer - owned
paint - owned
buttons - $1 from JoAnn's
1 yard of fabric - $10 from JoAnn's
foam - $12 from JoAnn's
thread - owned
Total (roughly) - $43

Hi Kim!
Your coffee table turned ottoman looks fantastic! I have a few similar ideas stashed for one that I would like to make for our family room. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and becoming a new follower...AND for leaving such kind comments! I've become a little slack on posting lately. Hopefully here soon I'll find my grove again. Take care, Val
