My ottoman is about 3'x3', so I made this 2'x2'. It is easy to adjust to what you need for you.
First, you will cut 4 1x2s for the frame. I cut mine around 24" and mitered the ends (which isn't necesary if you don't feel like it).
Then grab a handful of those thin strips I've talked about on several other projects to build the base (like this one). If you are going to use this to carry around items, it would probably be best to use 1x2s for the base to help hold more weight.
Thank you for checking out this simple project. Be sure to check out the other projects here.
