DIY Ottomans from Ikea Lack's

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!!

One more question, where did you get your cute tan small ottoman's? I am looking at some similar from target. We are re doing our front room and I really like the look of those, if you don't mind me asking.

Tai, I got them at down east and I think they are originally from PB. But I see ottomans like them at downeast all the time...it's hard to find good ones that are the right size, huh! I'll keep my eyes peeled for you:)
