Ottomans: DIY Living Room Furniture

Crafts for men, Furniture Ideas

Here’s a weekend project for you: Want to make THIS fabulous ottoman ?

Ottomans are elegant, and oh-so practical to have in your living room, in your bedroom, … in fact, in every room. I would even consider ottomans like these suitable furniture for a covered porch. And I’d like to have a couple of them.

The sturdy X-construction secures a stable extra seat, or that comfortable place in the living room to put your feet up.

I love ottomans and benches (and have written about it here
