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.
An ottoman, by definition, is typically a short and padded piece of furniture that is often used as a footstool, though they do have other uses. Ottomans often look like little furniture cubes, but can come in other shapes and styles. Not all ottomans are square; round and octagonal are other popular shapes for ottomans. Also, while most ottomans appear solid, with hidden storage under the seat, there are a number of open bottom designed options.
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.
