Obviously, it needs a little help. But, it definitely has potential. I started to take the cushion apart and remove all the fabric so I could paint it and recover it. This turned into a two day project. As I really started to get into it, I discovered there were about 1000 upholstery tacks and 1000 staples holding the fabric on. I got about half way through it the first day and I thought my hand was going to fall off. I couldn't pull any more tacks out. So, I walked away and took a break from the entire project. The next day, I decided I wouldn't let this ottoman beat me. So, I sat back down with my tools and finished removing the rest of the cover.
Finally I got them all out. The cover was off and now it needed a whole new look.
A little turquoise paint, a black and white print fabric and a staple gun...
How adorable is that?!?!
And all for $6!!
