Trash to Ottoman From Papasan Chair
I made this years ago, but get a lot of questions where I found it, then compliments on the idea, so I thought I'd share. I wanted a large ottoman for this room that would fit between the couches to match, so I bought extra fabric anticipating that kind of project when we ordered the couches. I found the base of a double papasan chair in the trash and it had the perfect bones for what I wanted. The project was a bit time consuming, expecially the pleating! I ironed for hours and used interfacing to make it match the corners of my couch. My husband raises an eyebrow every time I come up with a crazy idea, but he is always supportive, does what I request without question, and just goes with it. (Thank you Mike!) We were both happy with the result. The ottoman has held up over 10 years, so far, and gets used all the time!
