This is my before picture *Warning, it’s scary!*
This was a hand me down (FREE!) and didn’t look like this till the HB flopped down on it one day. RIIIIIIPPPPPPP.
Some people might have decided it was ready for the trash at this point…… you know I considered it till I priced large ottomans! Not only was the price not happening, I couldn’t seem to find another ottoman that was the perfect sofa/foot height so it had to stay.
It hid in shame till the day I found this
By the way, that’s a faux fur coat, no animals were harmed in the making of this post, or coat!
Yep, that’s right……I found almost a whole roll of upholstery fabric at goodwill for $9 in the exact color I had wanted. I may or may not have laughed to myself and said “not anymore” in my head when asked by another goodwill shopper “Oh, they have fabric here?”.
The ottomans time had come, I flipper her over, unscrewed the legs and pulled out a MEEEEEEELLLLLIIIOOOONNN of these
I was finally ready to start the beautification.
I knew I wanted to tuft the top and asked the HB if he would drill me a couple holes for tufting. That may have been a mistake, because what I figured would take about 5 minutes ended up being HOURS as he mapped out several different tuft layouts in AUTOCAD. Yes that’s right ladies, in a man’s world you need AUTOCAD to tuft.
Beautiful, AND not a bit of sewing!
