Ottodrawertastic!

I have been known to make up words so why not ottodrawertastic to describe this project?
 I used one of 12 waterbed drawers hubby had bought me at a garage sale to make this ottoman.
I added legs from a bunk bed post and a plywood top with 2x4's inside so the lid would fit tight without moving around.
A padded top completed this ottodrawertastic project!

    Thanks so much.

  30. What more could a person want, this drawer redo is fantastic, love it. Happen to have couple old drawers to reuse so going to revamp as you have. Perfect usage by making drawer multi functional, gotta love that. You always think of great uses for old things, glad you shared this. I like to put casters on bottom of things so I don't have to lift. Happy summer days
