The ottoman is finished

7:05 PM Katy 10 Comments

Took me about 10 hours to sew this thing, cuz I periodically stop the sewing machine, put down the fabric, and gaze off into the distance for long stretches. (This is a weird habit I've never been able to break. My focus only comes in spurts, and I live in my head waaaaay too much)

Ignore the rug, that's changing too...

Thankfully my kids were elsewhere on Saturday, so I could get this done.

I previously started with a much larger, stained, smelly ottoman that I rebuilt and cleaned up. This is outdoor fabric on sale at Hancock's for $7/yd, so this whole project cost me about $20.00. Since I reused all the batting and foam, I just had to buy piping and fabric.

  1. Excellent work! You always have something up your sleeve, don't you?

  2. oh was probably more than $20. lol, but I have leftover fabric for other stuff so whatever, right?

  3. First of all, I love your pallet wall!!! Simply love it! My husband and I are wanting to do this in our home also. I was wondering if you'd share how you adhered them to the wall, please? I see that you glued and nailed the boards, is that right? If so what type of glue and nails did you use?

    Thank you so much for your inspiration!
