We have been wanting a small foot rest or ottoman for our sun room for a while. Recently, fur ottomans have been popping up all over the place - but they can be pricey. So when I found this old tattered (real!) fur coat at the thrift shop for $8, I snapped it up.

Lucky enough to work in a place with a basement full of cast off treasures, so I also grabbed one of these old, empty cable spools.

It was a bit too tall, so I disassembled it and used 2x2s to readjust the height.

I added foam for comfort and legs and voila!
