A Pet-Friendly Ottoman

Before and After: A Chic and Pet-Friendly Ottoman

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member Vankunder from the Su Casa group:

My favourite ottoman became my dog's favorite play place. She tore off an entire row of decorative tassles along the bottom and loved the buttons pressed into the top of the ottoman. In the first photo, there is only one row of tassles left (out of three!) and I have to say, it looks better in a photograph then it does in real life. I needed to reupholster it so it was chic and puppy-friendly.

Want to see how Vankunder reupholstered her ottoman?

I took off the gawdy, chewed up tassles and chose a bold fabric . . . after my mom saw it she went to the fabric store and bought the same material to make a dress. I told her she wasn't allowed over when wearing it out of fear she'd match my furniture. The ottoman was a hit, though my pug daschund cross doesn't like it as much as she used to. Her mini fort beneath the tassles isn't as alluring anymore.

Have you done any reupholstering or redecorating lately? Be sure to post photos and tales in the Su Casa group!
