Table to Ottoman Redo-Redone-Renew

Back in December of 2009 I made a coffee table into an ottoman.  This was a gift for someone very special. But the ottoman has found it’s way back to me for a little makeover… change up the fabric to something a little more durable.
So to refresh… a .99 cent table was covered in fabric used from a curtain panel. To see the full tutorial click here.

As luck would have it I managed to find another curtain panel to use.  This faux leather panel was found at Habitat for Humanity for just $10.

Because the fabric we put on last time was stapled clean, neat and flat there wasn’t any need to remove it.  We did remove  the tufting buttons though as we didn’t think the new look would need tufting.

The panel had a seam down the middle that just added to the look perfectly.

Even though I really loved it with fabric, this look is fresh and streamlined. I like it alooootttt.

  1. I like it a lot, too! The seam really works in the centre.

  2. Looks great in your space. Everything old is new again :)

  3. Wow, that ottoman is amazing! I just love how it looks. Great job!

  4. That faux leather curtan was certainly a great find. The ottoman looks fantastic. Someone's going to get a great re-present.

  5. I agree - the seam really does make it seem like it belongs with the couch! Love how it turned out!

  6. I have to tell you Lisa, that I loved the first fabric you had used. That grey is so hot right now, too. It worked wonderfully with the white on the base. BUT, the faux leather is just as nice! It looks like the perfect piece that offers a masculine/feminine appeal.

  7. Looks awesome, and I agree, love the seam in the middle. Great job!


  8. Amazing transformation! I love it. I also love the colors in this room! :)

  9. wow, that's great! it looks like it was made for your space and couch! perfect!

  10. Didn't think I would like the leather, but it looks fantastic!!! But it makes me leather curtain panels??? Is Ozzie Osborne making donations to the Habistore? :)

    PS...your kitchen is a-mazing!

  11. Way to go! It looks super! Can't wait to look around your blog more. Looks like you have lots of wonderful ideas. :)

  12. Wow, that looks amazing! The upholstery and fabric choice looks so professional

  13. Love the ottoman with leather. Looks so nice with couch.

  14. Well, this just looks absolutely fabulous! I love it too! And the seam! The perfect touch!

    Great job!

  15. How wonderful!
    I like both looks, but this new faux leather is fab!
    I have the perfect spot for a piece like I just need to find a .99 cent table. :-)


  16. How strange - I have that exact bench and just picked up 2 of those identical curtain panels. I plan to use one to make handbags; now I know what to do with the other - great blog site - just visiting for the first time!

  17. What a great project! :) I've featured this post on Craft Gossip here:
