Ottoman Project

Just finished a little ottoman!  Though a very ugly "before", it was solid and well-constructed piece and turned out to be so much fun to work on.

This was the first time I'd used upholstery tacks.  It took me a while to get the hang of pounding them in (with a trip to the lumberyard for a new little hammer), but I like the way they look.  The transfer on the top is a replica of a French grain sack.  The date on it is 1960 which I think fits the piece.

I'll have this for sale at Liberty House on March 3 if anybody is interested!

Scary "before" shot--I don't know what was worse, the fabric or the green paint finish:
