You can use an old coffee table as the basis for a fresh new ottoman that will transform the look of your living room completely. As you can see, the process is pretty straightforward. An old electric wire spool makes the perfect frame for a round ottoman. And by building it you can be proud for reusing and recycling materials.
While chic but simple colour schemes never go out of style, taking risks with colour certainly pays off too! House Beautiful showcase this gorgeous fuchsia ottoman with contrasting olive green tray which add the perfect pop of colour to this sophisticated neutral backdrop.
It can be difficult to place buttons evenly, so I cheated. Instead of attaching the buttons with a nail back or hand stitching them into place, I used a template, marked the button placement with chalk and then made an "X" with two staples where the covered buttons will be glued into place.
As we know perfectly well, pallet wood makes an awesome material for many DIY projects. An ottoman is not an exception and you can build an awesome piece of furniture with it. We love IKEA hacks because we can make great things from inexpensive standard furniture. Check out how this awesome tufted ottoman is made from a plain coffee table.
