Boho Ottoman Makeover

 This particular ottoman got put on the porch for a while with a beautiful throw on top so you couldn't see the stains!  It was definitely time for a little makeover.  I re-stuffed the top with a couple of layers of Poly-fil Cushion Wrap and then did some magic with a staple gun and some E6000 Fabri-Fuse!  Voila!  In about 2 hours I had a brand new ottoman ready for another year of use...Or until I get tired of it.  Give your furniture a quick no-sew slipcover and don't forget to Make Your Mark!

I put this in front of my favorite chair and slept all weekend!

When I'm not using it to rest, it's a coffee table!
Watch how I did it here!
Poly-fil Cushion Wrap
Old Ottoman
Americana Decor Chalky Finish
Fabric, Fringe & Gimp Trim
E6000 Fabri-Fuse
1.  Paint the base with Americana Decor Chalky Finish to match the fabric
2.  Cut a slit on the top seam of the fabric
3. & 4.  Cut 2 sheets of Poly-fil Cushion Wrap the same dimensions as the top of the ottoman
5.  Stuff and straighten the Cushion Wrap on top of the existing padding
6.  Glue the slits closed with some E6000 Fabri-Fuse
7.  Cut Cushion Wrap to go over both sides of the ottoman making sure that it 
extends about 2" below the base that you'll be stapling it to
8.  Once you've positioned your Cushion Wrap, glue it in place with more E6000 Fabri-Fuse
9. Staple the Cushion Wrap around the base of the ottoman making sure to cut it so it fits properly around the legs
10.  Position the fabric on top
11.  Flip and staple in place around the edges to each leg
12.  & 13.  Fold the corner of the fabric inside of itself and then evenly wrap and 
staple it around each leg
14. & 15. With the ottoman on it's side, add a line of glue along the base and pin your fringe trim in 
place until it's dry
*Continue this all the way around the base
16.  Once the fringe is dry, use E6000 Fabri-Fuse to glue gimp trim over the top of the fringe
Voila! Not a single stitch!
Ready to kick up my feet and read!

  1. Hola Mark, un reciclaje precioso, tela es divina que junto al color coral de DecoArt y la pasamanería turquesa ha quedado un ottoman de lujo muy alegre. Gracias por la idea, el paso a paso y materiales utilizados. Besos y feliz semana
