Sporting a NEW Look

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Got any DIY projects going on at your house lately?

Well, meet my ottoman. This was INDEED in need of a new look. It was a Pottery Barn purchase a couple of years ago. Great size to just throw your feet up on or act as an additional seat, if needed! The once regal looking cranberry velvet is stained from some over-zealous cleaning of pet accidents AND speaking of pets, the corners are all frayed.

Chose a "Sunbrella-type" indoor / outdoor fabric for the re-covering project. It's rather indestructible (or so they say)...

Here's the piece that will become the new cover.

Here's how it looks in the room now. This piece also works in the guest room. Was happy to get rid of the reddish color - makes for a more unified space!

AND - it's been cat-tested and approved by the choosiest of felines!

I have enough trim and fabric left to fashion an accent pillow.
The fabric and trim were purchased from JoAnn fabric -- ahhhsome July 4th sale.
Both items were on sale for 50% off!!!

Have YOU ever made a slipcover. This one could have been much fancier. I have a wonderfully fuzzy small throw I plan to drape on top for some added texture in the room - that is when the current "fuzzy" decides to get down.

Happy DIY-ing!
