DIY: Was a Speaker Box now an Ottoman/bench

So my husband has had this guy for a lonnnng time...
It is a homemade car speaker box.

This thing is pretty sturdy.
But he didn't use it and it takes up space.
We were moving stuff around and trying to figure out where to put it or what to do with it.
My husband picked it up and put it down in front of his favorite sofa and a lightbulb went off in my head.
Ding Ding Ding
It now has a new life as a ottoman! 
I am pretty sure he loves his new look.

So here is a few pictures to show his transformation.
My Husband LOVES it! 

We removed the speakers and just left the holes open.

Cut 2 layers of 1" foam batting from Walmart to fit.
One layer at a time we we sprayed with foam adhesive.
The foam batting gives the top a nice cushy layer.

My cute husband trimming the foam a little while the adhesive dries.

We cut a piece of blue Naugahyde that we already had to fit.

Pulled it all tight and straight to get all the creases out and stapled away.

Gave him some nice tucked seams like a present.

There he is so handsome.

Haha funny picture but he is cute and so proud of his speaker box's new life as an Ottoman. 

This turned out to be a fairly quick and easy project that costed only $15 pretty well worth it.
