DIY: ottoman

matt and i always joke that when either set of parents come to visit, our home makes a major improvement... the blessing of having sweet, giving parents. :) were just here and my mom bought us all the fabric we needed for my next DIY and my dad did a lot to help too.

Remember these??
my dad loosened the bolts and moved the
wood from the inside of the spools to the perimeter...
added a little cushion
and covered with this great fabric :)
this is the before of our sofa...
and after
i am loving getting away from everything being blue or white and glad to get some color. Thanks mom and dad for all your help!
... if you are interested in doing a DIY ottoman from a salvaged spool, i got the idea here
