DIY: make an ottoman from a coffee table

this beautiful how-to was found on little green notebook.

Little Green Notebook

i love her story behind creating this piece.
she was at restoration hardware and a ottoman (usually priced at 1200) was on sale fore 150.
she was so excited!
she quickly stepped out of the store and called her husband about purchasing it.
once she got the go ahead from the hubby she ran back in to get the prized piece.
and guess what. it was gone. in a matter of minutes someone else snagged it up.
she says that she was extremely sad about it and i can only imagine.
anyways, with that ottoman still in her mind she decided to try and DIY one of her own.
i love how it turned out.
and her tutorial actually makes it seem do-able,
her step by step pictures are easy to follow and the instructions answered all my questions.
