Ottoman Recovered!

Remember that ottoman that I bought back in the spring? It looked like this...

And now it looks like this...It's now a smooth and sleek faux-suede beauty (pronounced "fow swade" not "fox swade") The texture matches my couch.

Here's a little surprise on the inside!

I'm thinking about making pillow covers for the two large pillows sitting on the ottoman. It would be out of the same fabric that was used on the inside but I'm going to let it sit out for a while to see if the contrasting patterns in the curtains and this fabric bugs me. I know it would bug some people, but I am not some people.

What would you do? Maybe I should research Pier 1 where I bought my curtains, buy one panel and make pillows out of THAT...

Our friend Heidi made it for us using Gimp (a free graphics program). If you have questions about it, her blog is lukeandheidi.blogspot.com. P.S. I love the suede ottoman!

I would of course search high and low for an extra panel and make the pillows out of that...or a different patter with those colors. But you already knew that about me! :)
