Our leather storage ottoman has been considerably beat up for a very long time. I used to have two cats who liked to sharpen their claws on it, and then I had two dogs and two toddlers. I wrote a post back when I first started blogging about repairing the leather; it helped, but it certainly didn’t fix it to be like new again. And again, time passed and the kids beat up on this thing further so it’s sort of an eye sore.
Fortunately, I discovered that it was pretty easy to pull off the top of this ottoman, remove the leather fabric on the top, and replace it.
I had the perfect fabric for replacing the leather- it was the remnants from my roman shades that I made for the room. All it took was some time ripping the staples out (use a staple remover- or you can just rip the fabric up too which isn’t as neat).
Here are some more pictures…
Oh yeah! Like what you see in the room? I’ve got a ton of DIY projects in this room… here are the links to them below:
