15 DIY Ottoman Ideas

I am in need of an ottoman in the worst way right now, We recently got a hand-me-down (but basically brand new) couch, it’s cute and comfy but it doesn’t have quite enough room for husband and I to share it while comfortably putting our feet up. I have decided to make an ottoman a priority project, whether it’s finding one and making it over, or starting from scratch. My goal is to have one by Thanksgiving! So, while looking for inspiration I found so many cool DIY’s that I just had to share them with everyone! I found such creative ideas from making one out of a coffee table, an old tire, an electrical spool, to starting from scratch. Check them all out below.

    I’m loving your blog!! Consider me an official follower! Xo :-)


    I have been searching for an ottoman for my bedroom, to match our new chair. Thing is we didn’t want to spend MORE than we did for the chair just for the ottoman. THESE suggestions couldn’t have come at a better time.


      That is so good to hear! I know they are so expensive, I was surprised that I could find so many awesome DIY ones that don’t seem too hard!
