Ottomans are not just for putting your feet up anymore! They are used as coffee tables, stools and decor… These DIY ottoman projects are so pretty, why would you ever put your feet on them? We have a ton of tutorials for you from some great bloggers sharing their projects, so let’s get right to it! Our featured project, below, is a DIY coffee table ottoman, meaning it was made from an old coffee table! From Yours Two Make!




Another coffee table turned ottoman by Inside Out Design! I love how she (eventually) tufted this ottoman! Go check out her tutorial and all the photos as well…



Not So Newlywed McGee’s create this DIY coffee table ottoman during their library makeover. Love  the colors and projects in this room, seriously, they did such and amazing job, you should check it out!




Jen at The Chronicles of Home created this DIY X-Leg bench that looks really updated and would fit well into any home. She has a total tutorial and it looks like a store bought product, she did such an amazing job!

DIY X Leg Bench 7


Erin at Domestic Adventure made this DIY ottoman on a pretty tight budget, less than $10! It looks so cool, and depending on the fabric you chose could be used in any room. I love the chevron stripe that is so popular right now!



Finally, make this DIY rolling storage bench with the tutorial and instructions from Design Sponge, featured on Oprah!

    Love how you did the x Ottoman with nail head ; I have the same Ottoman and want to change. The nail head is simple but, how did you start with fabric prefacing? Thanks

      That isn’t our project, but there is a link there with the photo that will connect you with the blogger whose project that is!
