Back in Quartzsite, friends Tom and Dianne bought a motorhome.  They had this little table that they no longer needed.  Unbelievably, it was exactly the table I had been searching for.  They gave it to us.  I have loved it.  

Today I had a revelation.  Since we have been on the road, I have needed an ottoman.  We had a little square storage one for a while but found we were always tripping over it.  So we gave it away.  Doug has a nice big lazy boy with a foot rest but I don't have one.

Look what we did:

By filling in the sides, I could add a cushioned top made from the same upholstery fabric as the rig.

On it's side it can be a coffee table for drinks
  And I have my foot rest at last.  

Thanks again Tom and Dianne.

Good for you! I have a little padded foot rest I use but I bought it that way. You created yours!

You really are amazing. I would never have thought of doing that.
