Creative DIY Storage Ottoman

Need some extra storage with an upcycling twist? The storage ottoman above is a DIY project from the blog Arts and Classy. And it’s actually made from an old tire.

The base of the project consists of the tire, of course, and some plywood for a base and lid. Three matching sofa legs sit under the ottoman. Batting and foam sit under the fabric to give the ottoman a smooth look. There’s also a rope layer at the bottom of the ottoman. The blogger used spray adhesive, a few thumbtacks and a crown stapler to secure the fabric around the tire and plywood.

Looking for an ottoman with a similar aesthetic? Whether you plan to make it out of a tire, or are just looking to reupholster a regular ottoman, you can see some of our pink patterns that are similar to the ottoman above. You can also see all of our pink selections here.
