My friend just moved out of her parent's house and into an apartment with her brother. They needed something sturdy to put their feet on while playing their 15 different gaming consoles. (Seriously. I counted.) So while walking around Ikea, we decided we should make an ottoman instead of buying it. I've re-upholstered some couches for my university's theatre department, so I figured we could do a simple rectangular ottoman.

We spent $7.20 at Home Depot on wood for the frame. And around $40 or $50 at JoAnn's on upholstery fabric and batting.

The whole thing took us around 12 hours to build and staple together. I have a lot of pictures of the process, but my camera battery died completely somewhere during the process, so I only have the picture of the final product I took with my phone. Once I actually unpack and organize everything from my dorm, I'll find my battery charger and post the pictures. For now, here's a crappy one of the finished product.

I love HUGE ottomans! This is pretty sweet looking one. My friend has one that will fit about 5-6 6ft. tall people on it..

Everyone's a photographer.
