From Old Trunk to Instant Ottoman... Thanks to a Few Casters


The day I landed this old salvaged trunk, I thought I'd morph it into a coffee table. But seems comfort one out first, because it became a rolling upcycled ottoman instead. Instantly!
The quick addition to the right kind of casters was the key. Add a coffee bean sack burlap pillow and you have yourself one junky ottoman even the cats can't refuse.
Dear kitty... may I have a turn?
An old junky trunk has recently become pretty hot property around here!

Finding casters with ball bearings was the key. Blocks of wood were installed inside the trunk for the required stability.

Making a burlap pillow case with jute ties just made sense! Pretty cool and equally comfy.

"I approve. The juxtaposition of rustic and modern comfort is mind blowing. This one rates an A+! for cats all over the land!"
