Before and After: Ottomans

Remember those Mary McDonald for Schumacher trims I shared with you the other week?  Remember that gorgeous black one I was determined to use somewhere? 

I decided to recover 2 ottomans I had, and use the bold 6" trim along the bottom of each one.  I have had a love/hate relationship with these ottomans in the past.  I bought them a long time ago, and loved the giraffe print at first, but oh so cheesy now!  Do you ever wonder "what the hell was I thinking when I chose that?".  That has been my thought for the past few years about these things.  I gave the ottomans the boot for awhile.  The problem is they are so darn functional and comfortable I just couldn't part with them, and one managed to sneak its way back into our living room as my permanent foot rest, coffee table, and semi-desk on the weekends.  After much deliberation over the right fabric to compliment this trim, the pair of ottomans are back in the living room full time and looking much better!  Check out the before and after below...



I decided to do slipcovers for these ottomans, so the covers can be taken off and dry cleaned if need be. 
After all, this is still a place to rest your feet! 

Happy Friday Everybody!
