Storage ottoman coffee table not only serves as storage space, but also functions as a versatile piece of furniture for a chair without backrest. Also, if the height of the ottoman matches the height of the sofa without its seat cushions, you can push the ottoman against one end of the sofa to create a small lounger extension.
How to make an ottoman from a coffee table is an example of ecological decoration. All you need to complete this project are cloth, foam padding, batting, adhesive spray and a staple gun. If your padding needs to be cut, an electric knife makes the job easy. Select a fabric that not only coordinates with your home, but is durable, too, such as upholstery, vinyl or leather fabric.
The size of your coffee table will determine the size of your ottoman, but you can change the design. If your coffee table has a glass top, replace it with wood. Glass is not a good base for the seat. If you want to upholster the entire coffee table instead of just the top, you may have to add the keys to fill the openings in the perimeter of the table. Cut sections of wood planks that are placed between the top shelf of the table and the lower shelf and place each foot more or less around the table.
