Today is the day that I reveal the little beauty that I've been working on....yes, the ottoman that was begging for some much needed TLC. I was a little intimidated to step out and do my own reupholster, I guess the only thing I could loose would be some fabric. So, I stepped into the land of fabric, staples and upholstery nails and dove into the ottoman. I'm sure that glad that I decided to try it out, it was worth the end result. Let me reiterate, I HAVE NEVER-EVER REUPHOLSTERED A SINGLE THING!!! It's amazing that these days you can watch a step-by-step video of how-to-reupholster anything on youtube, 2012 technology should never limit us from anything! I won't bore you with all the step-by-step details of the reupholster, it took me 3 days of work (while Hazel took a nap) and a total budget of $10, can't complain about that!
Yes, this is the lovely ottoman before. Very dirty and screaming potential.....can't you hear it!
The 1st step was to de-skirt that ottoman, it already looks better!!!
It took me roughly an hour to put the new fabric on the ottoman and about 1/2 hour to put on the decorative nails. I love how it turned out. I'm still not sold on the legs of ottoman and will probably jazz-the-legs up sooner than later.
I believe that my ottoman is finally feel'n the love and has been brought up-to-date! I would love to hear about any reupholstery projects you have tackled. Hope you'll are enjoying the sight of the new ottoman as much as I am. Have a wonderful Wednesday! XO
