Ottoman hack

Materials: MALM bench

I took a Malm bench put some legs and took the lid out. I trimmed high-density foam to cover the lid and upholstered it with fabric. I joined the upholstered top to the base with a continuous hinge.

The basic idea came from here.

    Great idea, Alexandria! May I ask what materials did you use? Aside from the bench and high-density foam, of course. I’m fairly new to DIY projects. Although I’m not yet at the level where I’m capable of making ottomans by myself, I’m building a list of tools and materials to use for future projects. Thanks!
