Project

As mentioned in a previous post, a friend of ours passed along a glider rocker & ottoman. It has been well used, and lived in a house with cats (which Brian is allergic to), so I decided that it needs a bit of love and recovering. I've never recovered any furniture before, so I started with the easy part: the ottoman. Here's a photo of the set before I started:
We had several panels of curtains like the ones hanging behind the chair, so I thought that I might just use the extra panels to recover this set. What do you think: More Maria Von Trapp or Scarlett O'Hara? Brian and I recovered the ottoman yesterday, and I have to head down to Ottawa St tomorrow to pick up new foam for the cushions in order to finish those.
I hope that the cushions turn out as well as the ottoman did!

Maria Von Trapp-Scarlett O'Hare's intentions were more sinister!

Great job!

The ottoman looks fantastic, and I'm sure the rest of the chair will be great!
