Hello, hello!! I am so excited about my latest project, I’m just going to go ahead and skip the intro and get right to it, mmm k?
I covered an ugly old, chippy, begging-for-some-love ottoman with DUCT TAPE!
This was part of our old set of furniture. It was faux leather (although the sales person said it was ‘real’ grrrr), and we’ve been using it in our kid’s playroom since we moved to this house almost 3 years ago. It was fully functional, but man oh man, did it need an Oprah style makeover, and BADLY!
Duct Tape Covered Ottoman
Do you have furniture that can use a second chance at life? Grab a few rolls of Duck brand Duct Tape in your choice of fabulous colors and patterns, and a sharp pair of scissors (like Fiskars Amplify) and get to work!

Level (for this chevron style pattern}
I used “Winking White” instead of the checkered pattern shown above, but I love the checkered tape, and I used it on my Duct Tape Rug!
For this chevron style pattern, I eyeballed the center of the ottoman, and made a large’V’ shape with my red tape in the middle.
Then using a level, I lined up the subsequent ‘V’s’ to fall directly under the first one, alternating with the red and white duct tape, so that it is nice and even. I cut the ends of each strip at an angle with my sharp Fiskars 🙂
Lastly, I wrapped the white, red, and some turquoise duct tape around the bottom half of the ottoman, in a regular striped pattern. This is a great opportunity to get really creative with your duct tape!
I left the wood feet as is, I figured it was the only part of the entire piece that was still in tact. But you know..if they start to show signs of wear, I will fix that right up with some duct tape!
