Every once in awhile, I look across the racks of clothes at my local thrift shop and lay my eyes on the perfect piece of furniture to refashion. Especially now that I’m trying to decorate the new studio. This “funky cheeseball” ottoman started out with a dark stain and this once loved cushion. Luckily, there were no nasty smells lurking within, so it was a prime candidate for a makeover.
I don’t know if you’ve ever priced new high density foam, but YIKES, it’s spendy! I felt like I’d struck gold when I found this whole ottoman, cushion and all, for five dollars. All it needed was a little lovin’. I thought I took some photos of the “before” ottoman, but for the life of me, I couldn’t find them. But I’m sure you get the idea. 🙂
I think it’s now the perfect match for my funky orange thrift shop chair. What do you think?
My latest eHow post shows you the step by step process to recovering an old cushion. Plus, it really is a pretty tutorial, if I do say so myself. There is just something about turquoise and orange that rolls my socks up and down. 🙂 I hope you’ll check it out…..

Well, I’m off to work some more on the studio. So much to do before the big Book Launch Party in October…..
