An Easy DIY Wine Crate Ottoman

Bierkeller Dress
A Kylie Jenner-esque Denim Dress

I’m super-proud of this swell ottoman I made all by myself!

I <3 that Celadon Green!

I’m even prouder that it only cost $29 to make ($7 per wine crate + $1 for 1970’s curtain set + free fabric for stuffing)!

I might even be prouder still that it didn’t require any carpentry skillz whatsoever. If you can sew a pillow, you can make one too! :)

I think it works well with my eclectic (i.e. thrifted) decor!

  1. I’d say, “mission accomplished,” and then some. Love that image of Douglas, btw. Aren’t most dachshunds divas, more or less? He can’t help it that he has star quality. He looks gorgeous on celadon!

  2. Cute! It goes together too, very eclectic and unique and you. I wish more people had style savvy and courage with their decor because, nice or not, far too often one place looks just like the next. I prefer to see it turned into a home reflecting the personality of its inhabitant/s.
    Is it wrong of me that I’m now picturing your floor painted in a creme or robin’s egg blue or something? Not that it needs it, but I’m picturing it and kind of like it with all your stuff. However, that would be me and not necessarily you. Take it as a compliment I’m inspired into imaging taking it over.

  3. Your refashioned ottoman is just as adorable as your refashioned garments. Bravo, chica! It looks like you are enjoying nesting in your new digs. :-)

  4. Love it! What is nice about it is not only did you recycle something, but when you either tire of it, or it’s outlived it’s usefulness, you can recycle parts of it yet again.
