Reader Redo - Ottoman

Hey there!  We've been so busy lately that I almost forgot about the Reader Redo Series we were planning on starting.  So, I'm gonna get right to it....

I was really inspired by this redo from Kat over at Maple Leaves and Sycamore Trees.  It really turned out beautifully.

She bought a table at Goodwill for only 10 bucks but then realized it was damaged.  Instead of throwing it out, she completely transformed it into a gorgeous functional ottoman. 

Here's a pic of the table as she bought it...

Pretty cute little table, huh?  But then she noticed one of the back legs was a little crooked....

So, she decided to turn it into something more functional for her family, which is awesome.

She removed half of the legs and spray painted them black.

Some foam, batting, pretty fabric and a LOT of work later, she transformed it into this....

Amazing!  I absolutely love it, don't you?!  And I'm loving that fabric.  You can find out her exact step by step process and see more photos over on her blog Maple Leaves and Sycamore Trees in case you'd like to try a redo like this.

Thank you, Kat!  :)

Have a great day!
