    Great tutorial! I just wanted to mention, if you create a square lip on the underside of round top that fits just inside the square base, then instead of screwing the top down it could lift off when you slip the upholstery off for sneaky storage!!

    Looks great! I really like the idea of adding casters to make the ottoman easier to maneuver. In fact, little more than a week ago, I did just that in our living room with our oversized storage ottoman. I found some cool rollerblade casters. on Amazon for about $6 each. There was enough solid framework on the bottom of the ottoman to catch 3 of the 4 holes on each mounting plate and I used sturdy bolts with large washers to help even the load out and they’re rated for 200+ lbs capacity each.

    And they’re in red, which is our accent color for the room!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
