Making Padded Ottoman Stool with Storage
Bought covered ottoman stool with storage can be expensive, as well as sticking with fabric that doesn’t really match your home. Why not make your own? This way, you can customize the fabric, size and even add some storage to boot. With basic tools, it’s pretty easy for anyone even moderately comfortable with a drill and a staple gun.
Stand up two 2-foot-square ottoman storage so that they are perpendicular to each other. Slide a length of one-of-one into the corner two boards do. Drill guide holes in each board. Screw a board in 1-by-1, then the other, is no door in the corner as it is guaranteed. Repeat with the other three corners until you have an open box. Place a piece of 2-foot-square plywood on top of the box, making all four edges and corners aligned and screw the tops into corner stones. Turn the drawer over.
Cut your foam squares with scissors or a knife so it’s about 1/4 inch larger on all four sides than your lid. Cut a piece of quilted wadding and place it on top of your foam. This gives ottoman stool a softer look and feel. Slide it slightly over the edge and on the underside of the lid. Place your staple gun so the staples are horizontal (not vertical), and staple the fabric in this location. Repeat for all four sides. This allows you to get it fairly even, rather than doing the whole of one side and finding yourself short of fabric. You should have the fabric secure enough to staple the rest. For the corners, fold the fabric over as if you were wrapping a present. You want your fabric tense, but not too tight.
