It actually joined our family when I was in high school and my dad was working during the weeks in N.C and had an apartment there. My sister was in college getting her first apartment so she went with my parents to buy living room furniture and then her and my dad split the set.
My dad took the ottoman.
All the furniture was reunited when my dad got transferred back to TN and my sister got new furniture. And it was just in time for me to get my own apartment so it all came with me then.
It was a bit on the country side but I loved it. So comfy to put your feet up on.
At some point, a large dip occurred on one of the sides of the ottoman and I didn’t know why.
Was there a giant bubble in the foam that got pressed down, did the ottoman itself break, did the foam get pushed down in the frame? Who knew!
So while Travis was deployed to Iraq, I decided it was time for a redo.
Told ya it was a little country.
Luckily, the ottoman wasn’t broken, there was no giant bubble in the foam, the foam pad just got pushed down into the frame. YEAH! So I found some new paisley fabric, sewed a new cover, added some wood braces under the foam, added new feet and it was good as new.
And I loved it!
Well, a few months after Travis got home from Iraq we bought new furniture so we didn’t need the ottoman anymore but we decided to keep it.
It went and found a new home in the office.
And then when we headed to KY it was used in Travis’ man cave but Travis wasn’t too keen on the pink, green, and beige paisley pattern.
We found this new fabric at Hobby Lobby and then it sat in my craft room FOR MONTHS waiting to be used.
The week before we moved, I finally decided I better get this done so away I went and had it done in about 2 hours.
And here is the new ottoman.
I see many more makeovers in this ottomans future as the years go on.
Linking up to some of these parties.
