I love taking an old piece of furniture and giving it a second life! This $2.99 end table from a Thrift Store was perfect for turning into a cute ottoman! I did it for under $25.00 and it was actually pretty easy!

I painted the legs and sides of the table my favorite color blue and distressed it just a little using sand paper ...Four layers of quilt batting insured a cushy feel! I used an electric stapler which was a necessity for this project!

I chose a gray-blue piece of heavy fabric for the cover and stapled like a nut! (If you are a professional I'll go ahead and apologize!)

Leftover fabric from some curtains and some trim I got who knows where were perfect for a ruffle to hide the 7 million staples! (I stapled the ruffle on, then using a giant needle, sewed the trim)

She's a sweet little ottoman!
