It's DIY Day at Kimba's. Guess what I've been working on?
I knew I loved ottomans, but it seems my fondness for them has become apparent to my husband as well. He asked me if I was going to start an ottoman business and call it The Ottoman Empire. Ha, ha.
Really, though, I just can't seem to get enough of them. And why not? Is there a more versatile piece of furniture?
I found this treasure at the Habitat for Humanity thrift store the other day and snapped it up. It was ugly but structurally quite sound. $10 out of my wallet into the coffers of one of my favorite charities, and I got an ottoman. That seemed like a good deal to me.
Luckily I had lots of fabric left over from the new bedding I made this spring. And with a bit of help from my staple gun and my glue gun, look what I have now:
An ottoman. Covered in houndstooth fabric. With cedar-lined storage. I think I'm in love.
This cutie is going in my closet, which has been subject to a massive clean-out. I've wanted a place to perch in there. Now I can sit in style.
But I may have to beat the rest of the family to my new treasure. Look who had a seat while I was snapping pictures!
