Ottoman Footstool - made from scratch. Literally.Many of the components for this footstool came from the curb. The feet came from a sofa on the trash, the plywood for the top and bottom rounds also, the 2x4 braces came from a work site trash pile; the nuts and washers for the legs came from my neighbor's stash, as did the decorative nails. Two layers of polyfiber were used to pad the top, and those were salvaged from a good, used cushion. The webbing, Eiffel Tower print burlap (on the side), and black wool fabric (on top) are new. I still need to locate trim for the top edge...I'm thinking black pom pom trim. Oh, and the thing I'm most pleased about is that the footstool is stuffed with clean, soft and semi-soft plastic, saved over time from my household use....instead of it ending up on the landfill. Measurements: 18" in dia. x 15" H..
