|The thrift store ottoman with new legs, the fabric and trim for a new look.|
Now, I could have ordered the matching ottoman (still can), but this brings me to the second reason I didn't buy it. I prefer things not to be too "matched". I already have a matching sofa and loveseat, and that pushed my boundaries a little bit. So for the ottoman I wanted something a little different. A different color. Something to bring some life into my great room that can lean toward blah if I don't branch out with a little color now and then. So I began my next hunt - for the perfect ottoman. I always have a tape measure in my car (usually in my purse - a trick I picked up from my Mom). I keep the measurements of what I am looking for with me also, because you just never know when you are going to run across the perfect piece. That is how I knew this ottoman would be perfect when I found it, and so I bought it too, for a mere $20.

Cheers to saving money, tapping into your creativity, and having a really comfy place to curl up and call your own!
