How to Turn a Glass Coffee Table into an Ottoman

A versatile and chic piece of furniture that can easily blend in a modern or vintage-style décor is the ottoman. Combining a sense of style, functionality and practicality, an ottoman is a must-have item for a cozy home. If you have a glass coffee table, transforming it into an ottoman is easier than you may think. Here’s how:


  • Wooden boards
  • Foam
  • Fabric
  • Staple gun
  • Random object


  1. Cut four pieces of wooden boards that are slightly bigger than the dimensions of the glass coffee table. These boards are going to be the base of the ottoman.
  2. Place the four wooden boards next to each other, so their edges form a square.
  3. Cut a piece of foam that is slightly larger than the previous square. Place it on the boards.
  4. Cut a piece of fabric that is large enough to cover the four boards and the foam. Place it on the boards.
  5. With the help of a staple gun, staple the fabric to the boards. Make sure to pull the fabric taut.
  6. Place the random object of your choice on the center of the fabric. This can be anything from a cushion, some books to a glass tray.
  7. You’re done! Your ottoman is now ready to enjoy!

Your newly created ottoman is the perfect centerpiece to your room, adding a modern and stylish touch while also providing comfort and functionality. Whether you choose to use it as a footstool, a side table or a decorative piece, it’s sure to bring a statement to any home.
