We have a bedroom in our new house, that we call our library. I have to tell you it feels pretentious calling it that, but since there is no bed only armchairs and book shelves, and it’s where we go to read, it is a library.
Anyway we’ll maybe eventually get a couple of recliners, in the meantime we’ve two armchairs and they needed footstools. So I picked up these two side tables from IKEA for just 6e each. The fabric came from a creative reuse store (everything is free there once you pay your annual membership) the padding and foam was salvaged from a sofa that we were junking. So all in all they cost me 12€ (about 15$) for the two. And they were pretty easy to make.
And some in progress pix.
Fibre fill underneath with a foam layer on top to smooth everything down. The foam wasn’t quite wide enough, but I’m on a make use of what you have kick at the moment.
Just stapled in place. The only necessity for this project is a decent staple gun.
Legs screwed on and it’s time to finish my book.
