You can also add in a storage component by adding hinges to the seat of the ottoman, which will allow you to have some hidden space for odds and ends.

This coffee table will take some handy work and a few crates depending on how big you would like this table to be, but once complete it will be a great piece in any home.

This rustic nightstand uses a combination of a rustic crate and modern hairpin legs that allow the table to stand tall in your room.
