Blue and Yellow and Stripes!

I have some bad news!

Tomorrow the Impossible Challenge is over and my bedroom looks exactly the same! :(
Good news my living room is finally getting the updated look I have been going for!! :)

Today I will show you a few things I have been working on and tomorrow I will give you a mini tour. Since, I'm suppose to show you my challenge final progress, my living room will take it's place!

Our ottoman was in need of some serious help!




A combination of milk, glue and who knows else...It was either time to get rid of it or give it an update! And since I don't throw much of anything away! Update it is!

I first unscrewed the legs off...at this point I haven't decided if I would paint them or not


I got some awesome fabric from fabric.com. I got 2 yards for like $8 a yd!


 I just wrapped the fabric around the ottoman, and stapled in between the cushions





 Turned it over and.....

I'm in LOVE




I decided to not paint the legs. It's hard to tell on the brown rug, but I liked them as is!

I'm so happy with the way it turned out!!

Here are a few other things I have been doing

I'm making pillows with the other fabric I ordered!


Here is a an awesome thrift store find I got for $4!!!


Have a Fabulous Monday!!

  7. I love the stripes! It turned out so cute, you should be so pleased. I am actually going to be re-doing my Grandad's old, uncomfortable ottoman, so I am going to need to add some padding to it, but I will be sure to refer to your link for inspiration!

  19. OK, to get this straight- you did that with just staples! Holy freaking cow! I have been postponing my own ottoman makeover as I was dreading the whole sewing thing. I am so excited to get on my own project!! Thanks so much for posting!
    {I do wish I could see the corners, especially for the bottom part, clearer. Does it look just like the top cushion?}
    Thanks a million!

  21. That is so fun and festive with the stripes!!! Thanks so much for sharing at the Kiss & Tell party over at I Gotta Create!

    By the way, you have word verification on. Sometimes that happens without people being aware of it, so I thought I'd mention it. I have a post about how to turn it off if you're interested: http://igottacreate.blogspot.com/2011/12/bloggy-tips-101.html
