No, we are not fighting the Turks, but celebrating the completion of the large footrest and coffee table that is now filling out the giant gap in my living room.
I can not claim all the glory of creating this piece of furniture, but I can accept most of it. I did find this treasure on the side of the road and convince S. to pick it up.
I did successfully pester S. to make it into an ottoman and was the creative director and visionary of it’s new form.
I did do some sanding. Keyword, some. I offered a lot of creative direction. Creativity is everything!
I stained this sucker.
Then applied two coats of polyurethane to give it this glossy look, sanding between coats.
And I sourced the fabric and lead the upholstering process.
That is the story of how our new ottoman was made. I know you are inquiring minds, so yes, the wood is maple. I know, you’re in awe.
