The holidays have been so busy and, for me, that included family time, holiday gatherings, and travel.
After traveling to celebrate the New Year, I decided to take an extra day off just to give myself time to recover and get back to my routine at home.
Thankfully, I arrived home just in time to receive some packages of build your own furniture that I have been waiting on.
This ottoman is so awesome that I had to share it with you.
It literally took me about 15 minutes to unbox and assemble the ottoman that I think will be going in our guest room 🤔 but I’m waiting on my husband to co-sign its placement.

I decided on this ottoman because I loved the design of the legs and the color as well as the metal nailhead trimming.
I was somewhat hesitant to order it because it did not have much internal storage (the storage depth is approximately 5 inches).
I’m so glad that I went ahead and ordered it anyway.
It’s amazing. Let me explain:
- It’s the PERFECT height (at a little under 2 feet high)!
- It can hold 330 lbs, a limit above my weight as well as my husband’s weight.
- It took me less than 15 minutes to put together with only 8 screws (and an allen wrench – which was INCLUDED)!
All of the pieces were tucked away inside.
For such a sturdy item, this was rather lightweight and easy for me to move on my own.
I always recommend doing an inventory and reading over the instructions before you begin.
This is especially a priority for items you’ve ordered online (or had delivered).
If I start an assembly project and find any missing pieces, I immediately initiate a return or call my local store.
You do not want to begin assembling an item only to realize that the needed parts are missing. 😣🙊🙈🙉😣
(I also attached the crossbar, but forgot to take a photo… sorry!)
The ottoman found its final hone in our master bedroom.
I’m so pleased with the finished look.
I’ve been wanting an ottoman in our master suite for over 5 years, but time and patience certainly paid off!
This was not a very intensive DIY, but I want to encourage you to find your own projects this year without fear of tackling them on your own.
I took on a minor risk, but there was great reward!
You can do it too!
Until next time, “Go fix something!” 😊
