Retro Redo: Vintage Octagonal Ottomans


Time for a little show and tell from our make over department. Today's subjects are a couple of vintage octagonal ottomans. I'm sucker for tufting, so I finished with 5 inch tufting and after painting the frames a satin ebony color. I chose a great turquoise linen fabric with a snazzy nail head treatment at the edge.

A staple gun, covered buttons, a yard and half of fabric, some paint and nail head and a couple of hours later, I have a pair of lovely re-worked vintage ottomans! I'll be listing them on the site later today - so, make sure and go check them out!
