I found this little darling at Goodwill for a price that was too good to pass up. I've dabbled in reupholstering before and thought this would be fun to play with.
I got it home, removed the green vinyl only to find this little surprise. I'm pretty sure that is cancer growing on the straw.
So, I wrapped it in plastic laminate (to seal in whatever delightful things are hiding in that hay), topped that with some thin batting and then... the piece de resistance: gorgeous velvet and cotton upholstery fabric donated by my good friend for the purpose!
Those corners were a little trickier than expected. Despite my weak staple gun skills (never mind that right corner), it's a very nice addition to the living room.
Doesn't it look lovely with our new-to-us rug? Another home-improvement-freebie from my design diva amiga.
Of course the children were in tears, begging me to take their picture on the new ottoman. The children get want the children want. I crown them emperor and empress of the ottoman empire.
