Remember the storage ottoman I started a couple of months ago? Well step one was easy. Step two (upholstery) proved to be a little more challenging. My first attempt was with a faux white leather. It looked terrible, too thick. I added buttons to the top, terrible. After looking and looking for an alternative, I finally came upon this orange bamboo fabric in the $5 section at Freddy Farkles. I thought it would work for the meantime. Now that I've got it on there I actually really like it. Mr. Sabbe likes it too. He keeps saying "it's so much cozier in here" and I remind him that the difference between a raw plywood box and an upholstered plywood box in your living room can be quite transforming.
