I have this super comfy La-Z-Boy sectional in my den. It reclines at both ends, but still could use a footrest for the middle seats. So, I recovered my ottoman!
First, I removed the bottom of the ottoman - just a matter of removing a few screws.
Then, I tore off the faux leather to reveal the frame underneath.
The fabric I used is actually the cover of some pillows. The couch came with 4 big pillows, and I only ever use 2 of them, so I took apart the other 2! The red on the top is leftover from my dining room tablecloth. I pinned the fabric around the frame and then sewed it all together. Voila! New ottoman!
It's not perfect, but it cost me $0 and does the job!
(Stay tuned for a full tour of the den!)
