Hey there! This may be one of my favorite projects that I’ve ever built! It’s so versatile and I’m sure you could find a place for one (or several) in your home 😉 Meet my Rolling Storage Ottoman!
When I built my Floating Shelves, above them, I had this idea in mind. We have a large family and we have guests over, a lot, so our couches fill up quickly. So, I designed these ottomans on wheels so that we could roll them out to create more seating in our living room! They fit perfectly under the floating shelves so they look cool when they are tucked away. Add a basket and you’ve got a functional storage spot too! Did I mention that you can build it in less than an hour for under $40? You could build it for much less if you have scraps! All of the cuts are short so it’s perfect to empty out your scrap bin!
A big thank you to our friend, Jay, from Jay’s Custom Creations for converting our design into a printable plan!
Alright, let’s go 🙂
I started with the legs. These are very easy. I attached the 1×2’s and 1×3’s together with Gorilla Glue Wood Glue and my Ryobi 18 gauge Airstrike Nailer. Put the glue on the 1×2.
Next, I assembled the top and bottom frames. I drilled 1 1/4″ pocket holes with my Kreg Jig and attached them with 1 1/4″ pocket hole screws.
After I filled my nail holes, I applied one coat of Varathane Early American stain. Just wipe it on with a clean cloth, wait 5 minutes then wipe it away with a separate clean cloth. Don’t wipe the stain away, just blend it.
I am seriously obsessed with these! I want some for every room in my house 🙂 Luckily my kids haven’t realized
how cool these could be on a wood floor what a bad idea racing these through our living room could be. So, until that day comes, let’s keep that our little secret 😉
Do you want to build your own Rolling Storage Ottomans? Where would you put them?
