Remember when we built the Cable Spool Pallet Bench? Well, we finally got around to making the companion piece out of the rest of the spool – the Cable Spool Ottoman with Storage! Made from the core of the spool, this ottoman means we can truly kick up our feet and revel in the fact that we finally completed the set.

This project wasn’t without pitfalls, though. We *might* have missed a very big step in the beginning, which required us to put our creativity in full drive to figure out how to work around the missed step.

Check out the video below to see how we made it!
