Well, what I should say is "My mom making it my own". I desperately wish I could sew. My parents gave me a sewing machine for Christmas, and I have used it a few times, but I have no idea what I am doing. My mom, her mom, her mom's mom, and my dad's mom are and were all amazing seamstresses. I'm pretty sure the reason I never learned to sew is because it requires a great amount of patience, something I have always lacked. Anyway, fortunately, my mom is super talented and always kindly obliges when I ask her to whip up something for me. Take for example, this lovely slipcover she made for an ottoman in our living room.
Here is her creation.
This is what is underneath the nifty slipcover. My sister scored this for me at furniture store in her town that was going out of business ($49). I knew I needed something large for this space and since we had recently been to the ER twice with my four year old(once for an incident with our previous coffee table), I also knew I wanted something kid friendly.
I placed this wooden tray on top to give it a coffee table feel.
I added a few eggs and the cute little bird for Spring.
I found four yards of the fabric, on clearance, of course
and we used leftover wool from the chairs shown in this post to make the piping.
My mom and I make a pretty good team. I dream up the ideas and she turns them into reality.
Oh how I wish she lived closer, and not just so she could sew things for me.
