DIY projects the ugly ottoman...August 2010

So before we moved I was on my way home from work and spotted a garage sale that was closing up.

This little gem caught my eye.. She was SO ugly, but it turns out the lady was packing up and did not want to drag in back into the garage and I paid $2 for this baby.... The lady had just reupholstered it and I LOVED the top of it...

I know shes ugly...


So I took off the legs....






Sprayed her with primer...





And they sprayed her black...


Voila she still has a little life left in her.. And I now LOVE it, we were looking for something for the end of the bed because its so high and sometimes at night Daisy trys to jump and falls off.. I thought this would make it easier..


And now that we are all moved into our new place... there is no room for her...

It's amazing how that little amount of paint changes the whole piece. Fair play! -- Catherine

Great job on re vamping it. Hope you can find some place cool to put it.

Love it! I wish I had the eye to buy stuff like that and then redo it.
