French Ottoman Side Table

I so love this transformation by Heidi from Honeybear Lane! She had an inexpensive cube storage ottoman that had seen better days. Heidi’s hubby is on the sentimental side and couldn’t part with this item that the couple had purchased when first married. (Sweet, right?) Tired of the dirt-prone microfiber, Heidi ripped it and the foam from the ottoman to reveal a cube made from mostly plywood.


Heidi had a vision of what it would become and turned the ottoman into a distressed French side table with a story. (You will have to check out the tutorial to get Heidi’s background story for the table!)
