Before and After: Ottoman

There have been many small projects going on around here in whatever spare time I have.  I have lots of ideas, but finding the time to execute is a little harder.  I thought I'd share one of my projects I finished a couple of weeks ago.  

I found this ottoman a few years ago at an antique shop.  Nothing incredibly unique or special, but it fits just right in front of a chair in our bedroom.  Plus, I like the plain, classic lines that can be made a bit more exciting with a fun fabric.

Here's the before:

The fabric itself I liked, but it didn't go with our new, "brighter" master bedroom plan.  So out with the old and in with the new....


Much better!  I'm so very close to sharing the entire bedroom makeover.  Just a few small touch-ups to do before I can slap a "done" label on it!  

Here's a small look at the bedroom.  Things already look a tad different because I decided to paint the headboard a crisper white.

I hope to one day get rid of the grayish-blue carpet, but for now, it'll just have to do.
