Attach Casters

Flip toy box over on its side, then attach casters approximately 1” in from each of the four edges using a drill and 1” wood screws.

Upholster and Attach Lid

Cover 1/2”-thick precut pine top with batting and fabric using an upholstery staple gun and upholstery staples. Next, attach the piano hinge along the underside of the toy box's top inside edge using a drill and included piano hinge hardware.

Fill With Toys and Enjoy

Once your designer ottoman is complete, you can easily hide toy clutter while putting up your feet at the same time. The mobile ottoman can roll out of the way if you have company, or double as extra living room seating.
