A groovy shaggy ottoman to rest my feet!
Love texture? This ottoman has texture! I saw a shaggy ottoman in the Viva Terra catalog just after buying an ottoman for $20 at a local thrift shop. I decided to make a removable shaggy slip cover. First I removed the outdated paint. For now, I wanted a bare wood look. In the future I may decide to paint the legs creamy white or black. After removing the paint I sanded lightly and waxed the wood. Then I made a slip cover using burlap and hot glue. The hot glue sealed the edges and kept the burlap from unraveling. I bought four types on yarn and string and cut it into six inch pieces. Using a crochet hook, I looped the yarn and string into the burlap. After watching eleven movies over the next eleven evenings and looping yarn...I finished! Now I can put my feet up! Rug hookers, would a rug hook have worked? Viva Terra
