Remember this post from a few days ago regarding my (super) idea to turn some Rubbermaid containers I have on hand into super practical storage ottomans?
Well, I am back and I am a little closer to deciding how to conqueror this furniture DIY project.
I stopped by Hancock Fabrics and LUCKILY they had all foam 40% off! Woot!
So I picked up 3 pieces of foam for $5.99 each (that is a steal!) I got 1 inch thick foam that is 22inches x 22 inches. My Rubbermaid container lids measure 18×24 so I will cut the access 4 inches from the 18 inch side and make those slivers work on the 22 inches side. Make sense?
Next, I brought the Rubbermaid lids upstairs and worked on cutting the foam to fit.
I glued the foam down (I used Tacky Glue since I had that on hand).
So far so good!
Now, what to do about fabric?
Do I want all the ottoman’s to match? Do I want a colorful pattern? or something more neutral?
I am leaning towards neutral since I am unsure where these ottomans will live, especially once we move.
Another question for another day. This is all the energy I have for this evening-at least I had help:
Oh wait, she wasn’t any help :) I guess I’ll keep her anyway!
