Ottoman makeover from old and busted to new colorful hotness

toybox before and after
Those of you who have read the Offbeat Bride book may remember Joriel (an Offbeat Bride lab-rat). Joriel recently shared with us her awesome ottoman/toybox makeover. The top part of the ottoman bore the brunt of the problems. So she reupholstered the top and used fabric paint on the bottom.

I went a little overboard making the seat cushy, so now it’s a bit too tall. Also, the blue fabric paint didn’t fully cover the old pattern on the bottom because I only had enough for one coat. But nobody can deny that it’s an improvement! And it’s very comfortable.

I love the contrasting fabric ESPECIALLY when it’s sitting on that awesome rainbow rug.

By the way, we LOVE to see your makeover projects. Don’t hold out on us now. Upload ’em to our Flickr Pool.
