DIY Ballard Designs Inspired Ottoman/Stool

Hello!  Today I am over at Remodelaholic sharing how to create your own ottoman/stool!  I was inspired by Ballard Designs version pictured below.

Ottoman/Stools are so versatile!  They can be used as extra seating.

Stored under a console table.

Combined together as a coffee table.


Used as foot rests.



And seating around a table.

I love all the ways I’ve seen them utilized in the design world!

Come on over to Remodelaholic to see how my DIY version turned out, to get step by step instructions to make your own, and to get another little sneak peek of my living room (although I’ve restyled the shelving since).:-)

Hoping you have a great rest of your week!!:-)


Add seating and comfort with an easy multipurpose DIY upholstered cube ottoman or stool. You can make your own for MUCH less than buying one at the store, plus use your favorite fabric. Full tutorial from Provident Home Design on
