Upholstered Ottoman

Put your feet on this ottoman and enjoy your evening!
Being a film addict doesn’t make me a cinema goer. I much prefer sitting on my comfy sofa, drinking chocolate and enjoying the company of my husband. We are both maniacally hooked on good action and psychology movies. There’s one problem however, while watching, I like sitting with my legs stretched out. I usually use a chair with a pillow but I’d like to have something more stylish.

I’ve started thinking about Meradith and Kevin’s handy idea of turning an old table into an Upholstered Ottoman. They use a piece of fabric and puffy foam to cover the tabletop and make a tufted ottoman. The idea is tempting especially for someone like me who spends hours watching movies. I’ve already made Simple Tufted Headboard to read comfortably in my bed, now it’s time I put my feet up while watching :)
