This DIY Tufted Ottoman Only Looks Like It Came From Restoration Hardware (PHOTO)

While we love to peruse our Restoration Hardware catalog for ideas, very rarely can we actually afford to buy the cool furniture on its pages. That's why we jump for joy when we find amazing projects like this DIY tufted ottoman that we can make at home to get the look for less.

This stunner was designed by Abbie from Five Days 5 Ways, who turned what she called a "junky old coffee table" from Craigslist into an amazing focal point for her living room.

The tufted pattern, turned legs and nail head trim make this look like a designer piece, and worth well more than what she spent creating it. Want to know how she did it? Head over to Five Days 5 Ways and click through our slideshow below for more projects to try.
