Before and After: $4 Goodwill Ottoman

I frequent the Goodwill, looking for diamonds in the rough and spotted this ottoman for $7.99, but it was 50% off that day, so it came in around $4. I had been looking for an ottoman for my rocking chair in my master bedroom, so I can kick my heels for a few minutes when I am holding my babies.

Here it is with a slipcover made from leftover fabric from my bed linens… so there was no additional cost for that today. Love that!

I could have done it all in one fabric, but I felt a collage of fabric was in order to add a little interest to that side of the room.

You’ll notice in this photo that we finally did get a king size bed! I can’t believe I lived life so long without a king size bed… as much as I love to cuddle, it’s nice to sprawl when I am sleeping! 😉

It was pretty simple sewing, and I have a sewing video tutorial coming up for you, as soon as I can figure out my Adobe Premiere issues… it won’t recognize my camcorder, so if you have any suggestions on that, let me know!

Check back next week to see what I do to this Craigslist find…

I am going to start working on it this weekend and I am soooo excited!

Happy Friday!
