Remember my tufted ottoman post about a year ago? Well, since my three kids turned it into a washcloth for Ragu sauce, it has sat in my garage waiting for attention.
When I chose the original turquoise (yes it looks white, but it is actually turquoise) fabric, the lady at Calico Corner raved about how “stain resistant” it was, so I spent extra. Lesson learned….NEVER spend $20.00 a yard on ANY fabric. My kids had honestly ruined the newly upholstered ottoman within two or three months. Man have I learned a lot in the last year! Lesson number two learned…Home Fabrics rocks, and ever since a friend introduced me to it, it is hard to shop anywhere else. Home Fabrics carries the same fabric as Calico Corner and it is $12.99 or LESS a yard.
So, when the pressure came to clean out the garage…I made the change. I love this fabric that I got from JoAnn’s on super-duper clearance. I do not know the name or the sku, sorry in advance for that one.
The pictures are a little dark since I took these at night, but hopefully you get the idea. I moved my rug into the entryway because sitting a patterned ottoman onto a patterned rug is not usually eye-appealing in my opinion. Sometimes I just need a change, and removing the rug and adding the ottoman was just what I needed.
I love the large pattern on the fabric! I also re-tufted the bad boy, and if you look closely you will see the buttons.
Change is good!
