$5 DIY Ottoman


After the couch makeover I knew I really wanted a new ottoman. I had upholstered our old coffee table but it was looking worn and sad. Our dog likes to nap on it so after a while the fabric just wasn't as bright as it used to be.

Once again, I knew I didn't want to spend a lot of money on this project since it wasn't exactly a need. The table was functioning just fine, I just didn't like it anymore.

I started off with random supplies from the garage. Two old headboards that I'd made my kids, random pieces of wood and the feet and seat cushions from our old love seat. I didn't even bother with removing the fabric from the gray headboard because well... I'm lazy. haha!

$0 couch makeover



I've wanted a new couch for a few years now but I just couldn't justify buying a new one when ours was perfectly fine. I've considered recovering it or making a slip cover but I can never find the fabric that speaks to me in a decent price range. If I'm going to spend hundreds on fabric to recover it, I might as well buy a new couch.
