A Goodwill Interception!
So while planning for my mothers birthday party my father in law
was taking me to a few Goodwill Stores in the area, he started to
load a worn and outdated ottoman into the truck as a donation.
I proceeded to remove said ottoman and place this little diamond
in the rough into my project pile. Take a look at the very dated,
I removed all the old fabric with intentions of using it for a pattern.
I then added some remnant batting from prior quilting projects to
reestablish some comfort and shape. I bought about a yard of
upholstery fabric on sale for 50% off at a local fabric store but as
I was playing with my fabric I realized that I liked the way the fabric
draped around the corners andhow my new padding created
an elegant and rounded edge! I immediately threw out the idea of
sewing a traditional cover and simply began going at it
freestyle with my staple gun!

I chose to leave the legs exposed and added decorative
roping to finish it off. So for $22 dollars and about 2-3 hours time
I have a stylish updated ottoman for my family room… Now I need
to find a jewel of a chair to go with it!
