Gather Your Materials

First things first, let’s gather our materials. You’ll need foam, adhesive spray, batting, and a beautiful fabric of your choice. I recommend checking out Hobby Lobby for these supplies, especially when they have a 50% off sale.

Add Some Cushion

To create a super plush ottoman, we’ll be adding multiple layers of foam. Measure your coffee table and cut the foam accordingly to fit the top surface. Apply spray adhesive between each layer, ensuring a snug fit. Trust me, you’ll love the extra cushiony feel.

Design Your Tufting Layout

Now, let’s plan the tufting layout. Start by marking four inches in from each corner on all sides of the table. For a balanced look, create three rows of tufting, with eight buttons in each row. This will give your ottoman a classic and elegant touch.

Create the Tufting Effect

Using a pair of scissors, carefully cut small holes through the fabric and foam where the tufting buttons will go. This will allow the buttons to sink in and create a beautiful tufted effect. You’re almost there!

Add the Finishing Touches

To ensure a smooth and polished appearance, wrap the entire ottoman with batting. This will provide a nice layer of padding and cover any visible gaps between the fabric and foam. Once the batting is in place, it’s time for the fun part – covering it with your chosen fabric.

Choose a Stunning Fabric

Head to Hobby Lobby again and find a fabric that speaks to you. Look for something that complements the color and style of your room. For instance, if you’ve stained the bottom of the table in a coffee bean color like me, a leather-like fabric will add a touch of sophistication. Oh, and remember to snag it at a sweet 30% discount!

Bring Your Ottoman to Life

Now comes the exciting part. Without any sewing required, you can achieve that tufted look by using a hammer to secure upholstery nails or buttons into the pre-cut holes. Start from the middle and work your way out. You can get creative with the design – I decided to skip the diamond tufting effect in favor of a soft leather appearance.

Flaunt Your Craftsmanship

Finally, it’s time to revel in your creation. Admire the flawless folds and ensure they all face the same direction. Your new ottoman is now ready to be showcased in your living room or bedroom. It’s a perfect blend of functionality and elegance, and best of all, it’s uniquely yours.
