Mon makes things: Storage Ottoman DIY
I love crafts. I love DIY. My biggest DIY crush? Furniture redoing/making. I can't get enough. I am currently in the process of replacing my hand-me-down couch, and wanted a new coffee table or ottoman to replace my cheap and wobbly IKEA table that I broke in college a few years ago. I loved the storage capacity and the fact that it was on casters, but I really needed something boyfriend could put his feet on... Now, prepare yourself... **I got my crates from Michael's using those wonderful 50%-off coupons, so my crates were less than $7 a piece (gotta love coupons!). Build the Structure:Arrange your crates like so: Place one crate on the floor/work surface so that the opening is facing down. At this point, your table will look like this! Upholster a Top: Now your table has become an ottoman! Finish the Ottoman: Lay down a drop cloth to protect your work surface. Flip the whole thing right-side-up and admire your work! But seriously, look at that!
