We had this ottoman that we were using and it was good for putting your feet up on. But if you wanted to set a drink in front of you or to set anything in front of you, it was a little difficult because the ottoman was very small. So once we decided that it was indeed time for a larger ottoman, then we began to look around. I was not finding what I wanted. We don't have a lot of stores like at home, store home goods.
We don't have a lot of those stores where you can go in and find the diamond-in-the-rough at a very affordable price. I do do a lot of shopping online, so I do look around at different places online and I was looking for like an extra large sized and I'm sure many of them know the prices can be sky-high. I did not want to spend a lot of money, especially not the prices that were being asked online, so we decided to take on the task, our selves, and this way we could customize it to look exactly the way we wanted it to.
So we laid painters, tape and the size of the ottoman we thought we wanted. We laid that out on the floor and moved around it just to be certain that it wouldn't be too big and that it would also be big enough. The length of that original Ottoman was four feet and I knew that I liked that length because it pretty much covered the majority of the sofa. I initially thought I wanted a square-shaped ottoman, but this would have been too much in this small space.
So we headed out to Lowe's and we purchased three composite pres composite shelving boards and we also purchased one or two one by six studs to go around the sides. I decided to go with the three pieces of composite shelving as opposed to just a piece of plywood because the three pieces of pressed wood together came out to exactly the size that I wanted without having to be cut or altered in any way.
And it was cheaper than the piece of plywood. My husband used his Kreg jig to connect the three pieces together and make sure that they were nice and sturdy and they would not flex at all. By doing this, we also purchased the legs and all the other hardware from loads. We decided on how far in we wanted the legs to go.
