I wanted to share with you one more project I did in Abigail's room, her ottoman. When I found it last year at a yard sale for $5 dollars it looked like this...
I just fell in LOVE with those legs! I knew I wanted to paint them out white and add distress ink to bring out the curves. I just didn't know what fabric to recover it with, so I went off to Hancock Fabrics. I found this material for 50% (score)! I only needed a yard to do the whole thing.
After unscrewing the hinge I realized I did NOT get material for the inside! (bummer) Looking through my stash of fabric I found the left over material from redoing Abby's Goodwill lamp. (which I scored with the shade for $4)
The pad on top of the ottoman was very thin. I wanted it to be nice and plush, so I added 2 inches of padding. Next I traced the top of the ottoman on the backside of the fabric with a 4 inch seam allowance, and cut it out. Using my air compressor and staple gun I attached the fabric to the top by wrapping it tight and stapling it as I went. After that was done I wrapped and stapled the outside of the ottoman.
I tried to hide all the staples in the seams or corners so it looked like this...
I should of painted the lovely legs BEFORE adding the new material, so I had to tape off the fabric to protect it. Here it is all finished! (Excuse my puppy Gracie is a Diva and tries to get in every picture lol)
What projects do you have going on this week?
Where do you go to find fabric for the best price?
