Small Ottoman

I just finished recovering this small ottoman that is in my daughter's room. It is really quite small 15'' x 11", I am not sure you can even use it, but it has been in her room for a while now. I guess it is just a decorative piece.

There is a before picture below of how it looked before it was recovered and repainted. I love this fabric you will be seeing more of it later this week.
I also love decorative trims. This is a simple burlap ric-rac, but it does add a little something to the ottoman.

Here is the before picture. It was cute, but it does not really match the new look we want for her room. I must admit I bought it for $4.99 a few years back. I guess we could put a few books on it. That's about all I think it will hold!

I really like that pattern on the fabric. We just don't have a good fabric store here anymore. I don't suppose many people sew any longer. It's a shame. I can't wait to see what else you've decorated.

Good Monday Evening... Denise

You are a Dear Sweetheart!!! Thank you, so much for stopping in to visit with me when while I have been down. I always love seeing..."Look Beyond The Picket Fence" when viewing my comments. I think cheerfulness when seeing you.

Today has been the first day I have actually felt like a normal being... glory to the Lord!

Thank you again for your thoughtfulness! And oh, my honey chile love this stool, those colors rock!

Blessings, Pamela

The ottoman looks so much better now! By the way my daughter's room is in blue and brown too, although your daughter's shade of blue is more aqua-ey?
