DIY Ottoman Made From a Coffee Table

This is a DIY ottoman project from the blog M is for Mama, where she offers a full tutorial. It’s hard to believe this was once a coffee table. But it makes a stunning ottoman now.

The DIY ottoman gets its texture from a layer of foam and quilt batting that was put on top of the coffee table, which sits under the fabric. The crafter secured the fabric with a staple gun, along with nailhead trim to hide/distract from the staples.

This piece also shows how great a soft microfiber material looks on an ottoman. Perfect for resting feet on. The shade is actually a very light sea foam green. It adds a touch of color to the space, while still having a cool, neutral look because of how light the shade is. You can see some similar fabrics below.
