Simple Lack Ottoman

Materials: Lack coffee table, Capita legs

Description: I love the new SODERHAMN ottoman, but right now is out of my budget (250 dollars for an ottoman? what?!) so I came up with this, which is basically another approach to a LACK/OTTOMAN hack you would find here, the only difference is that I used the 35″ x 21″ coffee table instead of the little one.

The instructions are the same as other ottoman hacks, the only difference is that I didn’t use spray glue because the foam will stay in place when you staple the batting.

Lack table $10 used from Craigslist
Capita legs $10 I was lucky enough to found them at “as is” section.
Fabric $15 (I got 1 1/2 yards, you can use the rest for cushions covers)
Foam $ 15
Batting/Dacron $ 8

Total $58

Now, if you live in US consider yourself lucky because I’m sure the material costs are cheaper than here in Canada.

    This is amazing! How thick was the foam that you used?
