I wanted a cocktail ottoman to use as a table and footrest, in some great color, probably tufted, with a little gold to tie in with the rest of the room.
Couldn’t find it.
When I saw the surprisingly sturdy VITTSÖ nesting tables at IKEA I instantly knew how I was going to make it happen.

I would just need to upholster … and paint … and drill a little. NO BIGGIE. No, seriously, it’s a lot easier than it sounds.
And here’s how it looks, after.
- VITTSJÖ Nesting Tables
- Polyester cord
- Large upholstery needle
- Button covers in the size of your choice
I spray painted the frame of the larger table in the set.
Drilled tufting holes into the MDF to be used as a base for my upholstering and tufting.
Upholstered and tufted using 2 inch foam, velvet, and buttons.
Used glass table top as lower shelf.
