How to Turn an Old Coffee Table into an Ottoman

If you’re looking for a creative way to repurpose an old coffee table, then turning it into an ottoman could be a great project. This DIY project is easy to do with a few basic supplies and can help you turn an old piece of furniture into something new and useful.

What You Need:

  • Coffee Table
  • Fabric of your choice
  • Staple gun
  • ¼” thick cushion batting
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

Step One: Measure and Cut the Fabric

Start by measuring and cutting the fabric for the new ottoman. You’ll need to measure the top and sides of the coffee table to determine how large the fabric needs to be. Add a few inches on each side for wrapping the fabric around the coffee table. Also, measure and cut a smaller piece of fabric for the underside of the ottoman.

Step Two: Attach the Top Fabric

Next, cover the top of the coffee table with the larger piece of fabric. Use the staple gun to attach the fabric, folding the ends over and stapling them in place. Make sure the fabric is pulled tight to give the ottoman a finished look.

Step Three: Attach the Sides

Now it’s time to do the same step with the sides of the ottoman. Pull the fabric tightly and staple to the underside of the table.

Step Four: Add Cushion Batting

Once the fabric is attached, add cushion batting on top. This will give your ottoman an extra layer of comfort and also help it look more finished. First, measure and cut the batting to match the size of the fabric. Then, staple it in place.

Step Five: Finish the Underside

Finally, finish off the underside of the ottoman by attaching the smaller piece of fabric. Make sure it is pulled tight and staple it in place.

Step Six: Enjoy Your Ottoman!

And you’re done. Now you have a stylish, comfortable new ottoman that you can use in your living room, bedroom, or any other space. Plus, you got to repurpose an old piece of furniture and give it a fresh new look.
