Several years ago I decided to make an ottoman. Never mind the fact I had no experience making furniture of any kind.
Surely, I could just buy a 2X4, saw it into some stackable pieces, nail/wood glue them together then wrap batting and fabric around them and call it ‘done’. Surely, that would be a project I could be proud of.
Luckily for me, I have honest friends who tell me when an idea I think is brilliant isn’t so brilliant. AND they help me follow through on making it actually good.
Thanks to my Oregon friend, Mindy (with her mad furniture making skills), my ‘ottoman’ that would’ve been an eyesore, turned out much more respectable.
Unfortunately, when we upholstered it, I didn’t take into consideration the fabric I picked didn’t go with anything else in my house.
So this ‘Ottoman of Great Potential’ has been relegated to the ‘spare room’ for years.
That is, until this weekend when my uber talented sister whose got mad skills with a sewing machine helped me upcycle it.
Over steaming herbal tea and with moral support from our Heather Friend (not pictured-how did that happen?!) we reupholstered, padded and tufted it with wired buttons.
The Big Reveal:
Victory is sweet!
