Project Remodel - Ottoman

As you guys know, I've been working on my room. Once I feel that the whole thing is photo-worthy, I'll let you see it. The wood flooring and paint scheme turned out awesome but for now, you just get this little project. 

We've had this ottoman around the house for while, it usually travels to whichever room Copper will be sleeping in, since he can't get into the bed without help since he's so little. Since I'm living here now, it's ended up in my room. I couldn't stand how it was a huge eye sore in my fresh new room so I finally decided to recover it. 

I've never re-upholstered anything in my life - so this thing is no where near perfection, but I think it turned out pretty decent! The corners were a challenge but Mom and I thought the little tuffs at the bottom made it look cute (it looks better in person, I promise). 

It only cost me about $20 at Hancock Fabric for the two yards because I had a 50% off coupon. The left over fabric is going to be used to re-cover a chair that goes with the desk. To my surprise, they had an awesome selection at the fabric store and I had a hard time choosing which one I thought would go best with the rest of the room.
