Floor cushions are great especially when guests are over, but most of the time they can take up a lot of space on the, well, floor. This DIY ottoman base not only gives you a space to store your floor cushions when not in use, but also gives you an ottoman (and coffee table if you add a tray) to boot. Ottomans seem to be the small space solution that keep on giving.While this project requires familiarity with miter saws and circular saws and finishing nails, the concept is one that could easily be duplicated in a way that doesn't require a workbench.
