This weekend we showed this green ottoman that doubles as a coffee table in our family room a little TLC.
The green fabric was okay but I was ready for a change.
Rather than spend the money to have a professional reupholster it (the holidays can be an expensive time of year and there are other places we'd like to "splurge"), I decided to enlist the help of my mom, who offered to sew a slipcover.
Instead of buying fabric for this project, I decided to just use what I already had.
These West Elm curtains we had in our last place were just sitting in a box anyway so I figured "why not"?
My mom worked her sewing magic and constructed a slipcover for the ottoman using the curtains.
I tried to pay attention so that I would absorb some of her sewing knowledge but failed.
Nonetheless, the slipcover is complete and I am really liking our ottoman's new look:
I think it is a good temporary fix until we want to get it professionally done.
Thank you mom!
I'm that person that has jumped the gun and started decorating for Christmas in November.
I couldn't help myself.
One more look at the before & afters:
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. Congrats Jayme E. :)
