Pink storage ottoman is girly color. How to make an ottoman with drawers is an intelligent way to add versatility. Flip-top covers can be cumbersome and things inside get stacked and messy. You can complete your project in less than 2 days when you take time to varnish or paint and allow the glue to dry. Determine the height, width and depth for your ottoman, and if you want it to have a square or rectangular shape. Draw a design on a piece of paper with your measurements.
Cut the MDF panels to the top, sides and bottom, according to your measurements. Stain or primer, paint the panels and let dry. Run a bead of contact adhesive along the edges of the bottom panel. Use a nail gun to fix the side panels. Fasten the edges of each corner. Add glue to the top edges and install the top panel. Allow the glue to dry for 24 hours.
Determine the width and height of the front of the drawer by measuring the inside edges of the top and bottom of the open side of the ottoman and the space between the left and right inside sides. Divide this measure by 2 to obtain the width and height of the drawers. Then, subtract ½ inch from each measurement to allow a free space between each drawer. Cut four pieces of MDF according to your measurements.
