The Finished Product
Things you will need: an ottoman, fabric (2 yards for this project), and a staple gun
This may be one of my favorite DIY projects I have done to date. A co-worker gave me this suede-like ottoman that she was giving away, and I thought, this would look so great in my living room if it wasn’t black. So my boyfriend and I decided to upholster it with material from Walmart. I bought two yards of fabric for $13 and a staple gun. In total, this project’s cost was about $35. Not a bad deal for the outcome.
It was a little difficult to finagle with the material on either side where we created the folds, but overall, I think the ottoman looks brand new. If I do say so myself, it looks like I bought it from a store for $100. So all it takes is a friend to give you an ottoman for free, $13 worth of material and a good ol’ staple gun.
I hope you enjoyed this DIY and thank you for visiting!
