"Ottoman Upgrade"

 
Back in January I blogged about upgrading my ottoman/coffee table.  It was originally a McCreary Modern floor model that I scored at the Habitat ReStore in Hickory.  I fell in love with the massive amount of storage it provided, but I knew I'd eventually need to have it reupholstered.  It took me a couple of years, but I finally had it done and I couldn't be happier with the result. 
 
 
I opted for the same fabric my vintage sofa is covered in and dressing the piece up a bit with a fun nail head trim.   
 
 
Mark of Baity's Custom Upholstery did an amazing job.  We tossed around a few ideas but ultimately settled on this design.  He really is a genius when it comes to bringing a vision to life, because my sketches often leave a lot to be desired.  
 
I can hardly wait to settle in on a chilly fall evening someday soon and put my feet up on this beauty. 
 
 
 For the spring and summer I've been using my new gold coffee table which I love, but this one is so much cozier. It's almost hard to believe what it looked like before.
 

 
 
I love how unifying the sofa and ottoman seems to elevate the space a bit.  Kinda fancy, right?
 
I change out the pillows for fall and I recently had a few new custom ones made.  The more neutral palette is perfect for fall. 
 
 

 


 
Sometimes getting things just right takes a bit of time.  I've found that when I'm patient and really hold out for what I want, I'm never disappointed in the end.   
 

Have a great week!
