I always say my Mom is the ultimate “Mom” she does it all. If Pinterest were invented when we were kids, she would have had the most pinned items. She made us shirts, she made stained glass art, she sewed, she cooked, the house was always clean, there were always freshly baked cookies… You get the picture. Now that we are “grown up” (I use that term loosely, as we all remain very immature 😉 ) she (now YaYa) comes to visit and we do fun projects together. This past week was no exception. Not only did she clean my house, bake cookies with Chloe, and baby sit the kids so Hubs and I could go to dinner… She also brought along a magazine with a super cute idea. Our coffee table was once my desk. We just cut the legs off of it. It was pretty ugly, but the kids could spill on it and color all they want. Still, I was looking for a pop of color in our living room and really wanted an ottoman. My Mom took notice, as always, and thought we could turn it into an ottoman. So we did 🙂 Yay Mom!
The steps were very simple..
Sand and paint the desk
Glue foam to a piece of plywood the same size as the desk/coffee table
Wrap foam and plywood in batting, staple gun it together.
Wrap fabric around that, staple it together.
Use short screws to fix the plywood to the desk from beneath.
