Painted Fabric Ottoman

Jasmin from My Little House Design found this tufted ottoman hiding in the corner of a thrift shop, and snatched it for $25.  At first she contemplated reupholstering it, but since the fabric was only faded and otherwise in good shape, she decided to paint the fabric on the ottoman instead of reupholstering it  The results of her painted fabric ottoman are great, and she says that the process was also really easy.

Looks great, right?  Here’s how it looked before she painted it…

The whole thing — ottoman plus the materials to paint the fabric — ended up costing about $50.  Amazing considering that tufted ottomans generally start at $300, and go up from there!
