We have been looking for relatively inexpensive ottoman cubes for extra seating in our living room for some time now.  There were never any that were the right size with a fabric we really liked.  So we decided to check Ikea for some options.  We found the Solsta Pallbo ottomans for only $19.99.

So they went from this . . . 

To this . . .

 To this!

Of course the plain white cotton covers didn't do much for us.  Instead, we found some fabric we liked at High Fashion Home, and I enlisted my mother-in-law to sew slipcovers for them.  This isn't the first time she has recovered ottomans for us (you can see her previous handiwork here).  She added a little foam on top to make them a little taller and voila!

Didn't she do a wonderful job?  They turned out just like I hoped and were obviously a much cheaper option than something like this from Pottery Barn.

Here is a close up of the fabric:

The cubes are great and it's nice to have some extra seating that's easy to move around when we have guests over.
