Turn Your Glass Coffee Table Into A Cushioned Ottoman

Glass coffee tables can be both elegant and practical, but they are not very comfortable to sit on. Luckily, with a few supplies and some creativity, you can easily turn your glass coffee table into a comfy ottoman. Here’s how:

Step 1: Make Space to Store Extra Cushions

Before you begin to transform your glass coffee table into an ottoman, decide if you need additional storage space for cushions, blankets and other items. You’ll want to find a space to store them where they are easily accessible and out of sight.

Step 2: Measure Your Coffee Table for Adequate Cushion Support

Measure your coffee table to make sure the cushion you choose is big enough to cover the entire surface. You don’t want to use a cushion that’s too small; this will make it hard to sit on the ottoman comfortably.

Step 3: Choose The Right Cushion

When selecting the right cushion, you’ll want to look for something that’s comfortable and durable. Ideally, you’ll want to buy one that’s large enough to cover the entire surface of your glass table. You may also want to look for one that has a removable cover so it can be washed easily if it gets dirty.

Step 4: Place The Cushion On Top Of The Coffee Table

Once you have selected the right cushion, place it on top of the glass coffee table. Be sure to secure it in place with a few heavy books so it doesn’t slide around when you sit on it.

Step 5: Enjoy Your New Ottoman!

Finally, enjoy your new ottoman! You can now sit comfortably on it or use it as a foot rest. You’ll be amazed at how quickly and easily you can turn your glass coffee table into a cushioned ottoman.


  • Choose a color to match your other furniture.
  • Add fabric or drawers to accent your ottoman.
  • Consider adding a tray on top of your ottoman so you can easily shift it around your space.
