Footstool topper project by My Thrifty Life by Cassiefairy 

DIY multifunctional furniture is just so handy; it takes up less space in your home and saves money on buying two items, which is exactly why we’ve created this two-in-one DIY project. We’ve made a padded ‘topper’ that allows you to convert any size of coffee table into a footstool or ottoman. It’s not attached to the table itself, so you can take it off while you’re enjoying a cup of tea, and then pop it back on top when you want to put your feet up.

You can easily make the topper to fit the size of your existing coffee table and, if it has a shelf below, you can adjust the measurements of the topper so that it also fits onto the shelf, where it can be stowed away when you’re not using it. The footstool cushion topper has a non-slip base, which not only covers the upholstery staples to protect the surface of the table, it also stops the topper from slipping off the table when you’re using it as a footstool or ottoman.
