1-Hour Update Ottoman

Happy New Year!  We had a great week off but now it's back to school and work and we're all struggling a bit.

I was doing some photo clean-up and came across a few projects that I documented but forgot to blog about last year.  This is a small part of a much bigger project that has been happening in our upstairs den over the course of the last year.  As soon as I clear out the random Christmas junk I'll show you, but until then here's the story of a sad ottoman I purchased from a local listserv about a year ago.  I think I paid $10 for it.  It was in good shape physically but the denim fabric was a goner.

Purdy, right?

So, probably 6 months ago, I found this fabric on Etsy and loved it (Cuzco Orchid in Stone).  I was going to recover the stool but then got lazy and decided to just sew a quick slipcover instead.  It took less than an hour and required no measuring - just turn the fabric inside out and pin the seams.  Easy-peasy.   

I think it needs something around the bottom edge like a sweet yellow ribbon trim or something like that.  If I find the right thing then I'll add it but I'm not going to spend a lot of time looking!  

What do you think?  Nice little improvement.
