We've all seen these tufted ottomans in the world of retail right? They're a good idea in thought, but they're really too small to hold more than a blanket or a few kids toys when it comes to living room storage. Instead, try this super simple trick to make them extra functional!

Zan over at MeLikeStuff was thinking outside the box (or in this case, cube) when it came to this red storage ottoman. Although they're not quite large enough for living room storage, they're perfect for the bedroom!

After removing the feet, she flipped the unit on its side and placed the feet underneath (without reattaching in case she wants to use it as an ottoman again). Now the unit has a door and works great to hold all the basic bedroom necessities that you want close at hand but not always on display. We love the look of the tufted fronts as they could provide a serious pop of color in a space without any extra commitment.

Check out the full process over at MeLikeStuff and keep an eye out for storage cubes at a local retailer near you to give a flip to!
