Storage ottoman – Have extra items in your house, but do not know where to store them? Once you have the company of, you do seem to have a lack of seating?! Build yourself a couple of storage ottomans can solve your problem to make an ottoman; you need six square pieces of sturdy plywood. I used 1/2 “thick plywood. Cut the sides and bottom of the Ottoman be 16 x 19 inches. Cut the top of the storage ottoman be slightly larger, about 16 x 20 inches.
All you really need to do here is make a box. Screw the sides and bottom of the plywood in a box shape. Now that you have built the storage ottoman, it’s time to cover it with fabric and give it finish. The first thing you need to do is attach batting to the sides of the timber. Next, attach the fabric of your choice. I made 4 storage ottomans, two with brown fabric sides and a striped fabric top and two with striped fabric sides and a brown substance top. You will need to cut the fabric so that it is 2 inches longer than the height of the stool. Then turn the stool upside down and begin attaching the fabric on the bottom of the storage ottoman with a staple gun.
Once you have attached fabric to the bottom, you need to pull the fabric taut and staple the fabric in place on the inside of the stool. To upholster the lid of the stool, spray adhesive foam pad on the lid. Then simply wrap fabric around the lid and short space underneath. Finally, if you want to add a more finished look on the inside of the storage ottoman, cut self-adhesive wood grain contact paper to the size of each page, and simply press into place. You’ve just built a footrest.
