My mom picked up two of these little ottomans/footstools from some thrift shop somewhere, who in turn received them from ROSS. The only thing missing from the BEFORE pic are the little ugly plastic feet they came with.

My father ripped the feet off, nailed on a thick piece of plywood, and I reupholsted them in some leather I bought on ebay.

The new feet are technically some sort of fence post finials from Home Depot, but I liked them as feet. I sanded, stained, and varnished them, then screwed them into the base of the footstools. They are of course flawed, but it's the best I could do with the materials I had.

Thanks for looking, hope you like.

They're great! And the feet you chose really look like they're supposed to be legs/feet for ottomans.

you're one of those people who still astound me on craftster, and that my fellow craftster, is a very rare thing indeed. (i mean common, everyone's like a master crochetier and knitter here, not to mention those atc folks Smiley) If i had the money, i would buy those from you.

Those are fantastic!  And it's so great that it was a 'family project', maybe you could go into business for yourselves.
