Manic Monday! Ottoman (I hope!)

So the other weekend I made an impulse decision to buy this bench base at an estate sale. It was only $2, so I figured if I didn't do much with it, it wasn't a big loss. I remembered later that I actually bought fabric to cover an ottoman around the holiday season... another impulse buy at Garden Ridge. Ours sells fabric remnants, and this one was 3 yards for $6. I'm hoping my husband can cut a base from one of the many pieces of plywood he has stockpiled in our garage! I have stain, but I still need to get foam, batting, and maybe some piping and buttons. I'll need some help with the sewing, too.... hopefully I can recruit one of my friends or relatives who sews to help me get over my fear of the sewing machine all over again! I posted this partially because now I will have to follow through with this project. I still have lots of work to do.... wish me luck!


  1. Oh wow, that sounds like a big project! I love the fabric and the base, though - I can't wait to see how it comes out!

  2. Thanks, Alli! I'll keep you posted! :)
