burlap foot stool

If you follow my blog you know that we just recently remodeled our screened in porch.  After purchasing new furniture minus the ottoman because they wanted $150 just for that piece, I decided to try my hand at making my own ottoman.  I had the perfect oak table that was the exact height that I needed.  This table has a great amount of sentimental value to me because my Dad made it many years ago and I've been saving it for just the right project. 

I purchased a square piece of foam from Walmart.  With some help from my mother we covered the top of the table with burlap. 


I layed the burlap on the floor, centered the foam and added the table upside down.  While my mother held it in place, I stapled it all to the bottom of the table.  This was no easy task because the table was solid oak. 


 I love how it turned out for two reasons.

Reason 1:  My Dad made the table and
Reason 2:  My mother helped me transform it to this.



My husband likes it too!
