THought I would post up some in-progress shots of my latest cabin project. We decided that we wanted a couple of ottomans to go with teh recently acquired futon. Figured it would be really nice to be able to put our feet up and relax in front of the fire.
Since the space is so small we also wanted the ottomans to have storage inside and have padded tops so they could be used as separate seating if necessary.
We couldn't find anything in the stores that met all of our needs so I designed some up and have been working on them last week or so. Hope to have them finished up before our Christmas trip to the cabin.
Started by building a simple plywood box...
Then I added the legs and some other details to match the style of the futon frame. You can see the plywood box and some other parts in the background of this shot..
Here is a closer shot of the details...
I still have to do a bunch of sanding on the first one, assembly the second one, stain and polyurethane both of them and cut and upholster the foam removable cushions. We found some really neat burlap-like material with leaves printed on it for the covers. Will post more as I make progress.
Been a fun project so far.
