It on no account hurts to have further seating available for guests, and adding storage and a multifunctional flip-high at the same time is a win-win.
here is how we made simple storage ottoman frames making use of plywood, 1x2s and a few flathead screws.
you will also want material, batting, and staples to finish the ottoman.
For the most important box of each and every ottoman, cut the next from half” plywood:
-(2) 15”x15” pieces for the top and backside
-(4) 13”x14.5” portions for the edges
For the within of the lid, reduce (4) 1×2” portions to 12 1/four” (the internal width of the ottoman minus the thickness of a 1×2 and somewhat extra wiggle room for upholstery — thirteen 3/four” – 1 3/8” – 1/8” = 12 1/4”)
We additionally reduce 4 small squares from the 1x2s for toes.
bring together each the plywood and 1x2s like this, with one finish as the exterior aspect, and the opposite finish as the internal. Situation a few screws alongside the facet of the plywood exterior edge into the end of the following plywood piece. Then situation a number of screws from the bottom plywood piece up into the backside of the open rectangular you just created.
Wait to glue the 1x2s to the within of the lid until after you upholster the ottoman, however it’ll be assembled the same method with one end of each piece being the outside and one as the interior.
Paint the areas a good way to remain uncovered if you want (I used a mild coat of black paint throughout the box, lid, external bottom of the field, and on the 1×2 lid pieces.
Upholster as favored. I tacked some thin batting over the edges utilizing upholstery staples, then made a simple rectangular tube out of my material and slid it over the batting. I folded the raw fringe of the material over and stapled it within the field and along the threshold of the bottom, then hooked up the toes with timber glue and screws on the within corners.
For the lid upholstery, I used 2” padding cut to the equal dimension because the plywood prime, then overlapped the identical skinny batting because the ottoman aspects over the threshold and stapled the material on the within floor. I didn’t fold the material side below on the lid considering that the 1x2s will be overlaying the fabric edge and staples (appear at the lid image above for reference). I then connected the 1x2s with a number of screws and painted the screw heads black.
revel in! I exploit the ottomans to store throw pillows and additional blankets, and flipping the lid gives me a first-rate transportable end table!
