Super Glue is a crafty and resourceful way to revamp your home on the cheap. Its versatility lends it to endless possibilities—even transforming your furniture.

Follow these simple steps to make your own custom DIY fur ottoman for a chic update to any room:

1. Purchase a used or plain ottoman.

If you are planning on adding fur, simple is best. Used ottomans are perfect for projects like this: not only are they cheaper, but they also add character to your design for a truly unique piece. If you’re not an antique shopper, a plain ottoman will do just fine.

2. Remove the original fabric.

Strip down the ottoman to its bare bones. Once you’ve reached the cushioning, prepare your Super Glue. If the cushioning is too damaged, it may have to be replaced in order to achieve the look and feel that you desire. Fortunately, foam is very inexpensive and easy to find.

3. Prepare the fur and the glue.

Take precise measurements before cutting the length of your chosen fabric: you’ll want a continuous strip that covers the whole ottoman. Sheepskin rugs are also a great way to achieve the same effect without spending too much time and money.

Apply glue to the frame. Place the fabric over the top and make sure that it is properly secured. Trim the edges to your liking.

4. Let dry and enjoy!

Your ottoman is almost ready! You will want to let it dry for at least three days to ensure that the fabric has properly set. Once the fabric is securely attached, your ottoman is ready to enjoy.
