I stumbled upon this DIY tufted ottoman and thought I might be able to pull it off. So, I was on the hunt for a cheap coffee table I could make into my own ottoman (for my mom). We found one at a garage sale for $7, and snatched it up!
The top is all scuffed, dented, and carved by some kids, but it works for this project since that part will be covered.
Yesterday I sanded that legs of the coffee table and the side strips. I was not sure how far down the fabric will go, and wanted to be on the safe side. I used some dark brown, semi-gloss paint from other projects my mom has done. All of our extra paint comes in handy!
Next up is drilling holes (this will require math... not excited for that), covering the top with foam, batting, and fabric, and then comes tufting, and finally the nail-head trim. I have no guarantees that this will stay the same as I continue on, but hopefully it will go smoothly.
I will update you when I have finished the tufted ottoman (or partly finished) and any of the other projects I am currently working on! Check back soon!
