At long last, the ottoman is done.
Shall we review? (Is it embarrassing to admit that I am seeing this in my mind as a flip book and the song running through my head is that old Music Together classic, Happy Puppy Dog?). Here goes.
In the store
Glass = Dangerous for kiddos. I know, let's make it an ottoman! Cut wood.
Paint Frame purple. Oops! Spraypaint black.
Reupholster with the wrong fabric.
Reupholster with the right fabric.
Freehand some rub n buff. Oops!
Tape off the stripes and try it again
Ah, finished. No?
More gold = More tape. Lots and lots of tape. Table bondage.
Perhaps should not have done this step under the influence of a glass (or two?) of wine.
But it turned out okay and let's be honest, I will probably not fix it. One more time: Before.
Love it, hate it, or total ambivalence, you gotta admit it's quite a big change!
Oh. Why is it only maybe done? Well, I'm thinking all the gold precludes the need for nailhead trim, but I'm going to live with it for a while before I make the final call.
What do you think?
Thanks for sticking with me on this one. I'm usually a done-in-a-day, for-better-or-probably-for-worse kind of a gal when it comes to projects, so this one has been a bit of a stretch.
What about you: are you in the middle of any interminable projects these days? Do tell!
