Coffee Table Redo

My dogs are adorable, but for some reason they decided to chew on all 4 sides of my coffee table. I've always liked the idea of an ottoman coffee table, so I decided to make one myself. Most materials I got on sale, so my total project cost was $42. All it took was a staple gun and 2 hours. ... well, and all the supplies listed below. Listed are the dimensions of my table, but it's totally flexible.


  • 1/2 inch plywood (28x48) - Have them cut it at the store. They usually do for free

  • fabric (36x56) - add a few inches to the side and top to your plywood measurement. I chose something transitional. An upholstery fabric is a good choice.

  • warm and natural batting (34x54) - trust me, this is the best batting and will stand up to a staple gun

  • grosgrain ribbon

  • staple gun + a bunch of staples

  • iron + ironing board

  • screwdriver/drill
