Easy Furniture DIY Makeover: Another Ottoman Makeover
At the end of this past summer, I was sent on a crazy thrift store shopping spree by one of my sponsors. One of the many treasures I found was this ottoman that I got for five dollars. I ended up sharing my upcycle on my post, Five Dollar Thrift Store Ottoman Makeover. I was happy with the final result until it sat in my living room for a while. In the meantime, we redid our floors and painted and it just didn’t go with the rest of the living room anymore. Soooo, with the power of a little fabric and a staple gun, I did another ottoman makeover.

Here was the original ottoman.
Here is the ottoman after I made it over the first time.
The worst part of this project was taking out the staples AGAIN! My hands are still sore!
I chose a more modern fabric to go with the living room. I needed less than a yard and of course I had a coupon so this makeover cost me less then $10.00.
I cut the fabric to size and went to staple gunning, making sure to hold the fabric taut as I went.
I flipped the cushion back over drilled it back into the legs and within a few minutes I had a completely different look to this old five dollar ottoman. It now fits in perfectly with the rest of our décor (I’d show you more but the living room is still a work in progress!
