Makeover Monday : Ottoman Edition

My job is to help make your home your happy place. There are a lot of specifics hidden inside that description and one of those is respecting your budget.

If you are a close friend of mine, you know I have a knack for turning something old into something new. It's my favorite way to personalize a space and it guarantees that your room is one of a kind. My latest flip took quite a bit of searching but it was so worth the search after I saw the finished product. I needed two 24 x 24 inch ottomans and was coming up empty. I found two custom options that were okay but completely busted the budget so something had to give.

Enter... two of these not so glamorous large leather ottomans. The stitching was coming apart, leather was peeling, tufted wasn't in our look, and they were just overall blah. Buttttt, the legs work, they were still sturdy, and they were $25 a piece! 


My clients fell in love the with the initial fabric I specified for a long coffee table ottoman so we ordered yardage and had the cubes reupholstered. They look amazing and my clients are happy they 1) got what they wanted and 2) saved some serious cash! Sometimes all it takes is the right eye and a few extra steps (on my end) to make it work!


How's that for a makeover Monday? Bright, bold, and ready to take on the week! Do you have any good trash to treasure stories? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!
