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!
The upcycled trunk became the perfect ottoman nearly instantly with just a few casters.
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!"
Now to get a turn before the other cat finds it...
