Ottomans are awesome, versatile accent furniture pieces that you can use as cushy foot rests, tables, seating and storage, wherever you need them!
To create a coastal ottoman, take Nautical and Coastal Fabric and re-upholster or slipcover an old existing ottoman, or soften a table, bench, or trunk. Other ideas: Adding a nailhead wave pattern or wrapping an old tire in rope for a rustic nautical look! I also found a few awesome coastal ottomans online to shop!
Ottoman. Nailheads are a timeless classic design, traditionally used on the arms and edges of furniture. This white nail head wave ottoman table by Nancy Boughton Design is a custom piece, made from marine vinyl. Draw the wave on paper, make the dots for the nailheads, then punch little holes through the dots. The dots will tell you how many nailheads you will need to make your wave pattern. Tape the pattern tightly around your ottoman, and let the hammering begin!
Designer Caitlin Wilson. You can find an example of a large striped slipcovered ottoman table on Find your Coffee Table Style.
