Becca says she can't sew, which is why she was putting off her ottoman makeover. You see, it needed a skirt that would need to be sewed, and she didn't want it to look homemade. To 'skirt' (pardon the pun) sewing issue, she bought a drop cloth (for $11) and used its finished edge(s) to make the skirt, thereby achieving a professional edge. Smart, right? But that's not all.
Since she was changing the original to a tufted ottoman, she needed to space holes in which to sew through thereby attaching the buttons. For this she used pegboard. Really smart, right? As you can see from the after picture, the project was a major success. To read all about it, and to get all the hints you need to attempt such a do-over yourself, visit Gardeners 2 Bergers.
