Before I show you the steps to recovering an ottoman. I want to tell you that I am guest posting today over on Anna’s blog My Life and Kids. I’m telling the story of my addiction and how it almost killed me… several times. Head over here to check it out!
There ya go! It has scratches everywhere! My three little precious cats use to run and skid across it. This is what my bench ottoman looked like…. that is before I recovered it.
Here’s what you have to do…Remove the first layer of staples. The ones that our securing the fabric that covers the inside of the bottom.
Remove the legs, if you don’t have the proper attachment just use some needle nosed pliers.
Next, take quilt batting and fold it in to 3 layers, wrap it around your ottoman and staple. Your going to do the same process as we did here in our Crib to Upholstered Headboard. It’s the same concept.
Next take your ironed fabric and repeat the steps above.
Then take the black bottom cover and re-stapple it. This gives the ottoman the finished look. You can also paint the legs of your ottoman. I spray painted mine with Krylon’s 18kt gold spray paint. THE BEST GOLD SPRAY PAINT ON EARTH
Now our beat up leather living room bench ottoman is gorgeous! This HGTV Home Jigsaw Malachite Fabric from Joann’s provided by Becki at Infarrantly Creative is just divine. See how it was used in her son’s room here. Thanks again, Becki!
That’s it. So Easy Peasy but what a difference don’t you think. Phew another playroom/office project down
Who else is digging gold again? What are you painting gold?
