Doesn’t man’s best friend deserve his own ottoman? It doesn’t take much work, so come on — throw him a bone.
Following are plans for both an ottoman and a slipcover for it:
Materials and Tools:
1. Cut the top, bottom and four side pieces of the ottoman to the desired dimensions using a circular saw. Drill pilot holes with a countersink bit, and then use wood glue and screws to secure the pieces together to form a box.
2. Spray the box top with adhesive and place the foam over it to hold it in position. Wrap the entire box with polyester batting so that even the sides are soft and free of sharp corners, and then staple it in place. Staple the canvas taut over the batting, making sure to create nice corners.
3. Stain the bun feet as desired and let dry. Secure a bracket in each bottom corner, and then screw the feet into position.
