Red Floral Ottoman

Here is the ottoman before.....



I love the bold print of this fabric! My client chose a solid red to use for the piping to frame it.



Of course there was a little bit of matching involved.


I think I am being inspired to change out my ottoman to something bold and fun. I'll have to see what I can come up with.


Side note #1--- two weekends we headed up to our cabin to work on finishing the bathroom. We needed to put up a few more pieces of beadboard on the walls and ceiling. I decided to leave the walls white and paint the ceiling turquoise. Then I am going to trim it out in wood that I stain walnut for the baseboards and window casings. Can't wait till it's done and I can put up my turquiose chevron shower curtain that I made about 8 months ago.

The boys were big helpers and wanted to paint the beadboard for the ceiling. What the heck, right? Less that I have to do, and who's going to be able to see up close on the ceiling if they don't do a great job?

Unfortunately they got bored after awhile and went off in the woods to work on their fort.

Side Note #2---- yes....I ran another race last weekend. I ran the Red Rock Relay. It started at Brianhead up Cedar City, Ut canyon and ended in Zions.  Here I am on my first leg of 5.6 miles about 1pm. Halfway through it started raining and hailing and the temperature dropped to 44 degrees. It was almost all uphill. My second leg was 8.4 miles around midnight, and my third leg was 5.25 miles uphill about 9am. Then I ran an extra 2 miles for someone....so about 21.5 miles total! I think that's it for the year unless I end up running Vegas Ragnar Relay.
