Tools and Materials

To re-cover an ottoman, you'll need: fabric (the amount depends on the size of your ottoman); staple gun; scissors and an iron. Before beginning the project, remove any hardware or notions from the ottoman. Ours had a cord, tassel and hinges. We also removed the small wooden legs to make the job easier.
