Home Keeping: Ottoman
I am short. Just about 5' tall. Most years of my life, I was very flexible and just curled up on the furniture rather than have my legs dangle down with out touching the floor properly.
But in the last 5 years I've had lower back issues, and right now I'm having an issue with my left knee. We had a love seat that was a dual recliner, so I sat in that for several years and solved the lack of being able to 'curl up' on the furniture. Until that piece of furniture didn't work properly anymore.
So we got lovely new chairs from Ikea. They make an ottoman that matches it but I didn't like the look of it, so we didn't buy it. I've been using a toddler chair to prop my feet on which is fine, but when my knee hurts it was hard to ice it without my leg being out flatter. (hope this makes sense)
My solution was to have the coffee table brought up close to the chair and put my legs up on that. No problem until I had to get up. Then someone had to move the very heavy coffee table so I could move!
Sunday night I finally took the situation in hand and searched the internet for an ottoman. I found one at Target. It came yesterday.
I took this photo nearly right away!
This morning I took a few more photos of it.
The lid is removable for storage, too.
It's perfect and I'm glad to have found something stylish and affordable!
My short legs are happy, too!
