Today, I wanted to share with you one of the projects I did last night in just 2 hours. I found an antique ottoman about 4 years ago to use in my little girl's room. Recently the ottoman was looking a bit rough, so it was time for a change. As a rule when I purchase anything I make sure, A) I love it, (not like it, love it) B) I will keep it for a long time and C) it can be used in different rooms and can be redone if need be. I love nice things, but I want to keep the cost down, so I shop around for good deals all the time. The total cost of the ottoman with the materials was $30.
Materials you will need are:
Upholstery Fabric (measure your ottoman first and then you can figure out how much fabric you need or if not sure ask at the fabric store.)
Sand paper (fine)
A can of Krylon spray paint
|This is what the ottoman looked like|
|I used 1 yard of the upholstery fabric and before stapling make sure to stretch and hold down the fabric tight then staple into place.|
In the first picture you can see the ottoman is rectangle shape, so I stated stapling the first long side of the ottoman, then the small side next. Once I did this, I gathered the center together and stapled. See picture below.
|I gather till I got the look I wanted.|
|Here are the old feet of the ottoman.|
|Feet all sanded and used Krylon Carmel Latte color.|
I hot glued the trim around the ottoman and here is the finished product. I love how it came out and the colors.
|See how I gathered the center and tucked into place.|

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!
