My grandparents-in-law made some of these for the kids and grandkids for Christmas in 2000. They're wonderful. My kids love to hide toys in them Cheesy

Amazing transformation!  A hint for next time you have stinky wood to deal with is alcohol-based primer which is available at "real" paint stores (not sure about home centers and hardware stores).  It STINKS itself and definitely should be applied in a WELL ventilated area.  However, the strong smell only lasts until the primer is dry (and hour or two) AND that stuff blocks the smell (and stains) of 50 years of cigarette smoke, house-fire smoke, mildew, etc. so it can block stinky-old-furniture smell.

Wow - those storage ottomans are quite pricey for the large ones, so you did great!
I'll have to keep my eyes open for one to transform, myself.

Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone.  i am going to tackle my older couch and loveseat someday when i figure out how! it has this curvy wood trim that goes around the top and arms.  but i LOVE my ottoman, i sit on it and have magazines in it right now. it looks so cute in my living room. i suggest everyone make one!
