Well, it's that time again. Time for another upholstery project.
Sometimes it takes a while for me to get going on a project. It's really a bit strange when you consider that other times, I can't move fast enough on getting things completed. Whatever the reason, I'm finally addressing my coffee table/storage ottoman. You may recall when I picked it up on one of our ReStore shopping trips to the Catawba Valley ReStore. I blogged about it HERE.
It was a great piece of McCreary Modern furniture with tons of storage and it was a steal. I purchased it with the intention to have it recovered, but honestly the longer I kept it the more used to it I became.
Originally I thought I'd used this ottoman with a contrasting strip that I spotted at High Point Market as my inspiration. I was thinking I'd add a huge dose of color with a graphic fuchsia stripe down the middle. However, the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to select something that would work for years to come.
Ultimately, I decided to go with the same fabric that I used on my camelback sofa makeover several years ago. I figure having the two act as a set will allow for changes later on and produce a grounding affect that will allow my other accessories to take center stage.
Of course, just covering it with a piece of golden cream fabric doesn't seem like much fun so I'm going to punch it up a notch with a nail head trim. I'm thinking about getting a little fancy here.
