Finishing the DIY Shaggy Tuffet

Here’s the second part of my DIY Shaggy Tuffet project that you can make in a day. Yesterday, I showed you how to make a shaggy cover for the Fairfield Foamology Soft Support Foam Tuffet Kit. In this post, you’ll see how I finished off the shaggy tuffet to match my Arabian Nights living room décor.

For this part of the project, you’ll probably have to move from your sewing room to the garage!

The first thing you’ll need to do is drill holes in the circle plywood to attach feet to the tuffet. Keep in mind the feet do not come with the kit, so you can choose what will really match the design of your project. I opted for four wooden black feet.

Optional: To make a cover for the base of your tuffet, you’ll need a black cardboard poster board. Mark a circle the size of the plywood on the poster board, as well as the holes you’ve drilled in the plywood for your feet. Cut out the circle and punch out the holes with the screws. Set aside for later.

Use quick-dry wood glue to attach the plywood to the base of the foam. Wrap the foam and plywood with the 36″ x 36″ piece of cushion wrap. Flip the tuffet upside down and staple the cushion wrap to the plywood; cut off all the excess.

Staple the cushion wrap to the plywood and cut off the excess.

Slip the shaggy cover onto the tuffet. Flip the tuffet upside down once more and staple the cover to the plywood; cut off the excess fabric. Note: Make sure you can still see the holes you’ve drilled for your feet.

Slip the cover onto the tuffet and staple in place.

If you’ve made your cardboard base cover, it’s time to attach it to the bottom of your tuffet using glue and staples. Now it’s time to attach the feet to the bottom of the tuffet.

Attach the feet to the bottom of the tuffet.

See how easy it is to make a shaggy tuffet!
