Ottoman

  • February 12, 2015


I needed an ottoman for the wing back chair I just recovered. I built a frame with my Ryobi circular saw. I used wood screws to attach the boards together. I also attached 2- 1 X 2 's in the frame. This provides a surface to attach the seat. I then measured a piece of thin plywood for the top of the frame. Before attaching the top to the frame, I wrapped an old cushion with batting and stapled it to the board. This is the seat. Next, I wrapped the frame with batting and stapled it in place. I then stretched fabric tightly over the seat and stapled to the underside of the board. Turning the seat over, I placed the frame on top and secured with screws.Next attach legs (purchased from home improvement store). I painted them to complement the fabric.
