It's no secret that I love looking at Pinterest for inspiration. Ok fine, I'm slightly obsessed. Well yes, maybe just a little more than slightly. Anywho...
I've seen a lot of small ottomans on Pinterest lately. I particularly like this one, from West Elm.
I started my shopping at Lowe's, where I bought two 2 by 2 foot pieces of plywood, four furniture legs, the angle brackets for the legs, and a can of oil rubbed bronze spray paint. In total, I spent about $60 at Lowe's.
Then I went to JoAnn's fabric store, where I bought a large pillow, a square piece of dense foam, and some batting. With sales and coupons, this came to $30.
We let the wood glue really set for about an hour. Finally, it was time to start the fun part of the project: upholstering the cushion. Bill brought the air compressor and stapler inside for me and I set up shop in our living room. I laid the fabric and batting out on the floor, then layered the pillow, foam, and plywood on top of that.

This wasn't my first Pinterest inspired project, but it was definitely the most ambitious. Have you completed any Pinterest projects lately? How about any projects using power tools? I know I was hesitant to spend the money on the air compressor and nailer set, but I'm sure loving having them around!
