I finally got a chance to try it. My friend Susan had this ottoman and asked if I wanted to recover it. We were both torn though because it was kinda cool how it was it just needed something.
So I took it home and waited for inspiration. First I aged the wood with the vinegar & steel wool. Then I sanded the finish off the legs. Then it sat some more.
Finally inspiration struck. I whipped up a cushion cover out of burlap and sewed upholstery webbing in a Union Jack Pattern onto it. Then I stuffed it with foam and batting.
I left the top cross piece long so that I could attach it to the ottoman with upholstery tacks.
I like how you can see underneath the pillow a little bit. There are springs under there so it's really cushy.
& I like the burlap roll thingy around the edges.
Whatcha think? Are you feeling this look?
