This makeover gets the "extreme" label because, well, you'll see:
WHAM. Totally unrecognizable as the same piece of furniture, right? Joy from Beautiful Protest picked up the original ottoman at her local thrift store for about six bucks: it was lumpy and dirty and not really a color she liked, but a steal's a steal so she held onto it for future reupholstery efforts. After some creative hacking, reupholstery, and the addition of some thrifted mid-century style wooden legs, we have the beautiful ottoman you see here. Pretty nice, right?
Check out how Joy pulled off this makeover over on her blog Beautiful Protest.
