Mini Trampoline Disguised as an Ottoman


Recent internet discussions about a mini-trampoline in the house prompted me to share a photo of ours. A good friend of mine offered me her upholstered mini-trampoline when her children outgrew it. The skirt is sewn to the frame, and when the cushion is removed, the trampoline fabric is revealed. The cushion cover comes off (see the zipper?) for cleaning.

The trampoline has many uses besides a place to jump. We've used it as an ottoman. Plop a tray on the cushion and it becomes a coffee table. The kids sit on the floor and use it as a table top for play, as seen in the photo.

Great Idea! We have a mini trampoline and Hannah insists it be out in the living room.

My girlfriend and I JUST bought (what looks to be) that exact one today at a vintage shop in Eugene, OR! I tried to look it up in order to find out more information, but the only thing I came up with was this picture on your blog.

Angela, ask a furniture upholstery shop or a shop that covers boat cushions if they could make this for you.

I just bought one identical except to yours for $2.00 on an estate sale. Recovered it.
It was a big hit with the grandkids at our Thanksgiving get-together!
