An IKEA side table called Trolsta, model of 2012, is interesting because of its legs’ shape in Gustav’s style and simple white color. You can easily change it into a vintage pouf with a very catchy design, and add bright fabric – like here colorful stripes – to make your side table bolder. Read the tutorial, go crafting and enjoy the result with a refined feel!
If you are about having a bit more storage and extra seating, this rustic denim DIY ottoman is a good idea. When unexpected guests turn up it provides both seating and somewhere to quickly hide clutter. The casters also make it really easy to move, and the seat is upholstered with old jeans that were stenciled to give the piece a personal touch. Watch it, if you have wooden floors, people will end up riding it around the house, and the wheels are really nippy.
This IKEA ottoman is bold and beautiful! It’s a great furniture piece for a mid-century modern or rustic living room, this cowhide cutie will easily complete the sitting area in with style. This little piece is super versatile. You can use it as an ottoman, coffee table, or bench. The IKEA Koldby Cowhide is fairly expensive, but the good news is you will have quite a bit of leftover hide for many other projects.
An IKEA Lack side table can be hacked with some printed fabric and decorative nails into a stylish ottoman. I love the chevron print fabric chosen for the project, it’s rather non-obtrusive and chic at the same time, and decorative nails add more elegance, such ottomans are ideal for rustic and modern spaces.
Need a little furry piece? Then go for a plywood or even cardboard cube upholstered with an IKEA Tejn faux sheepskin rug! It’s an easy craft, especially if you have a ready cube, and it looks very pretty and glam, and what can be cozier than faux fur? Such a pouf will fit many spaces – boho, glam, rustic, Moroccan and many others, too.
We’ve seen IKEA coffee tables customized dozens of different ways. They can be retextured, studded, and even given heavy marble tops. But this hack takes it in a different direction and turns one coffee table into an upholstered ottoman, and of course it can be used as a footstool or anything else you want – not only in living rooms but also in other rooms.
IKEA Vittsjo nesting tables are great to make a stylish and bold ottoman. The larger table in Vittsjo nesting tables set has a glass shelf on the top and a wood shelf on the bottom, but since this is a hack, the author switched them. The framing was spray painted and the piece got chic velvet upholstery – this fabric is very trendy right now and it easily adds chic to any space. Get inspired!
Little ottomans are all the rage! They are perfect under entryway tables, at the end of beds, under your feet, tucked under a coffee table, and under your bum. If you don’t have such a piece, take an IKEA Lack table and change it! This project will give you a stylish and chic ottoman with printed upholstery and decorative nails on the legs to highlight them. Make a couple to add more chic and style to the space!
Here’s one more IKEA Lack table hack, this time pretty neutral and very elegant. I totally love the taupe color, a lovely and timeless tufted look and decorative nails that highlight the piece. Such an ottoman will fit many spaces, from contemporary to farmhouse, from glam to boho, get inspired and make such a piece for your home, too!
