Make a furry ottoman DIY using a Goodwill San Antonio purchase. This is a sponsored post.
Who wouldn’t want to come home from a long day and relax on this luxurious ottoman? Kick off your shoes, grab your favorite books or magazines and sit a while. Learn how easy it is to make your own furry stool or ottoman. I saved a lot of time and money by using a stool that I found at Goodwill San Antonio as the base for this project.
Supplies used to make this furry ottoman DIY:
- Fairfield World Tuffet kit
- Shannon Fabric’s Arctic Fox Fur
- Thrifted stool
- Silver spray paint
- Staple gun
Remove the top of the stool. This usually just involves unscrewing the base of the cushioned top. Spray paint the base of the stool with metallic silver spray paint.
Glue the foam tuffet the the wood base. Both items come in the tuffet kit.
Lay the batting, which came with the kit, on your work surface. Place the tuffet on the batting, foam side down. Fold the batting over the wood and use the staple gun to hold it in place. When you are done, trim off the excess batting.
Cut a piece of the fur fabric so that it fits the tuffet. (For fur cutting tips, see THIS post at Shannon Fabrics.) As you did with the batting, staple the fur onto the wood base of the tuffet. I chose to cut my fabric so I could cover the entire bottom of the tuffet.
Step six: Place the stand with the legs on the wood side of the tuffet. Because of the thickness of the fur, I couldn’t use the screws that the stool came with originally. Instead, I used nails and hammered them in place.
This glam, girly stool looks like designer furniture I’ve seen in stores. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on it, I got to make my own in the exact color and texture I wanted to. Have fun crafting rehabbing your thrifted Goodwill furniture finds!
