DIY: Make Yourself an Ottoman

A Simple Ikea Hack That Yields Big Results

Nothing beats the versatility of a pouf — especially one you can DIY! Perfect for kicking up your heels, using as a coffee table, or providing additional seating, poufs are a small-space essential. The problem is they are pricey and usually run over $100. Thankfully, Kristi Murphy has a budget friendly solution that only costs $40. An Ikea hack of sorts, all it takes is a yard of fabric, scissors, and a basic Ikea cube. If you don't believe us, the full tutorial can be found here and will easily add a custom look to your home.

Aahh, this article just made me smile! I love poufs! Theyare so versatile! And with a toddler at home, this is a GREAT idea to add to her upcoming redecorated 'big girl' bedroom. Plus, I love DIY ideas and saving $$$!

Such a cute idea. I don't have any of the materials but it would be fun to do this if I did.

Can you give us tips on making a fabric covered headboard for a bed...maybe with buttons? My mom and I were discussing it couldn't be that hard to figure out.

Oh yes, that is definitely on my agenda this year but I think I remember a DIY on a storage ottoman.. I'll have to search back through Casa for it.
