I have been looking for some kind of bench to put at the end of my bed! Then after searching the stores and seeing the price tags for what I wanted, we decided we needed to head in a different direction!
Mom, my Craigslist hunter, found this ottoman/bench for $40:
It was in really good condition, but I needed it to match the stuff in my bedroom!
So we went to Wal-mart and found some upholstery and then went to Mom's house to tackle MY first upholstering project . . .
By the way its not the upholstering that is the pain, its the undoing of the original fabric and pulling out every . . . single. . . staple!!
But after pulling out the staples and realizing we didnt have the right size needles to do the buttons and a trip to JoAnn's Fabrics and an achy back after leaning over this ottoman for two days; we finally ended up with this beauty:
I took the pictures before we had finished up the bottom . . . but you get the idea!
