I have had a couple of Ikea's $8 Lack tables in my basement for a while. They have been used as coffee tables and have been working fine. Well, I came across a DIY ottoman tutorial on Pinterest using the Lack tables, and I knew I had to try it. Even better, it was no-sew! I do not sew, so anyting I see on Pinterest that doesn't involve sewing, I pin away!
It was so super easy...it just takes a little bit of time to put them together. Here is the link that I found with all the instructions.
I used these white tables that were in my basement:
Here is how they turned out:
Its the easiest thing...you just take camping foam, glue it to the table, then staple on batting and fabric. Seriously, anybody could tackle these, and they make such a huge difference!
You can also replace the fabric with something different if you grow tired of what you have down the road...which I'm sure I will!:)
We did end up cutting the legs down a bit, since the foam adds a lot of height...I wanted them more of a foot stool height. I am slowly getting our basement put together...but, as you can tell, very slowly!
Super, super easy...and best of all, cheap! Total cost with supplies, tables and fabric: $38...can't beat that for ottomans. Thats my kind of DIY!!
