VITTSJÖ Nesting Table turned Chic Cocktail Ottoman

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.

Tufting supplies:

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.
