Five Days ... Five Ways

Tufted ottomans are a great solution for many small spaces that need something that can not only serve as extra seating but also as spot to set a tray down in a pinch - but they are often quite expensive. Over at Five Days ... Five Ways they repurposed an old coffee table that had seen better days into a fantastic looking tufted ottoman.Considering that these ottomans usually run new in the many hundreds of dollars the cost breakdown for this project is quite impressive.

  • Coffee table: $40
  • Foam: $24
  • Quilt batting: $8
  • Buttons: $6
  • Paint: $3
  • Upholstery thread + Needles: $8
  • Nail-head trim: $12
