Thanks to Pinterest I saw an idea for a new ottoman.. Just liked how they reused an old coffee table. I pinned the idea.probably will never use the idea..but someone may..I continued pinning things for weeks.. like we all do..it is my cyber "hoarding" space. Well in Oct. while we were spending 2 months on the beach we were out shopping and I ran across some fabulous cow hides.. YES ..cow hides.. I love them..even tho I am more of a girly girl in decorating. I petted it and left..Since I had no use for one. Next day sitting on the beach it hit me. OH i could make that cowhide into that ottoman. A large one to scoot up to the sofa to make it feel like a lounger.. sooo back to town we went to pick thru the hides..$100 for hide...so here it is Dec.. I had been driving past my fav. junk store..never seeing the perfect table to reuse.One day I took dear hubby and off we went junking..40 miles from home..the 3rd place we went.. boom there it was..The legs were perfect. Paid the lady $38 ..she was shocked I would just want the legs off the table..well it was rectangle shape..and the top of the table was shaped so it would not work..and I knew how prices plain new legs at Lowes are..so load up table... lets roll.. Hubby cut me a 28" X 28" square of plywood, rounded the corners..off I went to town to buy a cushion and some batting and nail heads.. Of course all the cushions were 24 x 24.. Well I ordered a memory foam pad off the internet ,$48and cut it up in to 2 28 x28 squares..and now I have enough of that to recushion the settee at the foot of our bed.. so that will be getting a lift soon.
