Material Girl – Re-Covering a Long Ottoman or Footstool

Have a staple gun and some material? Then go ahead and freshen up your decor. I made this years ago it is just a piece of wood with some padding and 4 feet of plywood that I bought from Home Depot. The feet have simply been screwed on. It has been a big hit for sitting on in front of the fireplace or using as a footstool while relaxing on the sofa. I am using up all my spare pieces of material even if they do not match or co-ordinate perfectly, just because I like them. I love this mustard tone on tone colour.
