I might for reals in real life cry when this baby sells. The Rock Star Ottoman (so named because it completely rocks my world) is now officially my favorite thing. Ever.
It started out like this, remember?So much awesomer than a regular old coffee table. I had big plans to paint the legs either a high gloss black or possibly even a matte gold. But as I started to sand and get ready for paint, I couldn't do it. I thought the layers of black and white (my fav) and wood were beautiful. I put some poly on for protection and shine and just let them be. I know its not everyone's cup of tea. My husband kept asking when I was going to paint. Sometimes imperfection is perfection, ya know?It has been upholstered and covered in a fabulous and graphic black and cream stripe. A heavyweight indoor/outdoor fabric that can stand up to some abuse. Plus I Scotch Guarded the crap out of it. It probably couldn't live in the Family Room/hangout spot with my kids, but in the Fancy Schmancy Living Room sometimes a mom gets to have something a little special. To add to the glam factor I also tufted it. Rock Stars have to be glam. The Facts: 24" x 48" x 18" $175
p.s. See that couch ^ that's not so much a rock star anymore? Big changes are a comin'.
And a thanks to Brooke at All Things Thrifty for inpiring me to try some tufting! If you want to try it yourself, she has some great tutorials here.
