My Ottoman Makeover

After months of trying to find fabric that was affordable, durable and large enough to fit my ottoman, the search finally is over! With the help of my awesome husband the ottoman is recovered and looking good. Here is a reminder of what the ottoman looked like when we purchased it...

Of course it's no surprise that I would pick a hot pink chevron fabric to cover it with....

The chevron is a big deal to me because I love the pattern so much, but yet didn't have it anywhere in my house. I don't care if some people hate it or are sick of seeing it. I think it works well on the ottoman and in the room...

Now if I could only get myself to buy a new pretty gray sofa! That's not happening anytime soon. We love our ugly vintage couch. The empty wall over my sofa is killing me. I have ideas, just haven't been able to apply them yet.

My living room has so many things missing. I don't know if will ever get it finished. I have blank walls everywhere. I feel if I painted the room, it would feel more homey. This cream/off- white/antique color isn't working for me. Even if I painted the room a bright white it would be better. I also rearranged my Billy bookcase...

I still have my sad little sitting corner. I have been looking for some arm chairs to put here. For now I borrow 2 of our dining room chairs, because this is where we eat dinner. We like to watch TV while we are eating. I have thought about doing a photo frame collage corner or hanging some wall shelves for some Vinylmations. I can't decide!!!

For now I just keep searching for goodies to put in the room.

  6. The ottoman looks great! I love the pattern in hot pink. It looks so great with the pattern of your blue pillow. Are you going to slip cover your sofa? Your place looks fab!

  7. I have had that blue pillow for years! If I could sew I guess I could make a slip cover. I just want a new couch!!!
