Learn how to upholster at home with The Atomic Ottoman Kit.
It’s a workshop in a box and a mini master class in upholstery, that ends in a fab piece of furniture!
A rewarding hands on project and a creative outlet for students of all experience levels – the Atomic ottoman Kit will take you from DIY to professional with tutorials from a qualified upholsterer and teacher.
You’ll start with a box, assemble your frame, apply upholstery foundations, padding and expert details, culminating in a showstopping piece of furniture! Not to mention a grounding in upholstery skills you can transfer to future projects.
We’ve made it so easy. Simply visit our kickstarter campaign to choose your Kit, add textiles, tools or both (pictured below) – then click “pledge”.
Thank the mailman, and clear that bench/dining table, then…
- Unpack your sturdy plywood and pine parts, metal hardware and precision cut upholstery supplies
- Log on for professional video tutorials
- Refer to your handy print guide, and make your own notes as you go.
- Jump up and down! You made a very excellent piece of furniture with your own two hands!
We’ve placed 10 years of furniture making, upholstery and teaching experience in a box, along with quality supplies to make your own piece of upholstered furniture.
It can be done in a day, or in smaller steps and stolen moments. You can make it by yourself, or with a whole host of friends.
The Atomic Ottoman Kit is designed to teach you how to upholster using simple hand tools you probably already have – flat & phillips screwdrivers, pliers, hammer, sharp scissors and a medium duty staple gun from your local multinational hardware chain.
Access to a sewing machine is great, but not essential – there are only 2 straight lines to be sewn in this project, and if you really don’t like sewing machines, one seam can be avoided altogether, while the other can be done by hand.
We’ll step you through every inch of the process in thorough, comprehensive video tutorials, and connect you to an online group of students to share support successes and inspiration!
