Pallet Wood Storage Ottoman with Storage

I used pallet wood for the ottomans. I ripped down the 2x4's from the same pallets for the corner supports. The tops are made with reporposed plywood. I used 3" foam and heavy duty fabric for the cushion tops. As for the metal trim, I picked up some galvanized flashing. Then I took some Apple Cidar Vinegar and steel wool that I've had sitting in a jar for about a week. Did a quick wash over the entire ottoman to give them an old rustic, worn look. Let them dry over night and gave them a light sanding. Then finished them off with a light matte clear coat spray. Rough size: 2'x2'x2'.

  • These turned out great! What a cool way to accomplish the rustic look you were going for. The galvanized flashing looks really nice too- it brings a completes these pieces in a really nice way. Awesome work.
