I purchased this little ottoman last weekend at a neighborhood sale. It was black faux leather and had a tear in the bottom and the corners had been scratched by a cat. Nonetheless, I saw some potential there and customers come into the shop all the time looking for ottomans and small stools so I figured I would attempt to give it a makeover. First I picked up some drop cloth from Lowe's and washed it. I didn't want to do a large investment in fabric and I wanted to keep things neutral. I made a loose slipcover and really did not care for it. I felt like the little ottoman was wearing a hand-me-down slipcover. So I cut the slipcover up and started over.
