This is the ultimate “Before” post, and it feels a little cheesy/tease-y to run it without any “After” pictures, but I’m excited about the first phase of the “Before,” and want to share! I scored this set of four cool carved Indonesian wood feet at the sale of an occasional dealer who is downsizing her living space.
When I picked them up, all I could think was how great they might be on this double-decker, chintz-infested ottoman reposing in my auxiliary storage space. (After a new fabric choice that is!) The appendage-challenged ottoman only had two of four casters when I found it at an estate sale!
…as did all four!The real test! What did it look like upright? Perfect! The feet are 8 inches tall. I ripped off the double-decker cushion on top of the ottoman, leaving a 10-inch base. When combined with its new feet, the base is now perfect at ottoman/coffee table height.
So it was off to the TLU’s for this piece. I selected a cool, nubby linen weave material from my textle stash. It will need some additional padding, too.
Can’t wait to see what this baby looks like when completed.
You’ll see it here first!
