Last week I showed you my new bright yellow ottoman that I picked up at Goodwill.
Well, it's not bright yellow anymore!
With a little latex paint, some fabric medium, a spray bottle of water, and some elbow grease,
it nows looks like this...
It used to look like this....
Not that there was anything wrong with the bright yellow, it just wasn't jiving with the rest of the room.
The new color is Benjamin Moore Deusen Blue.
It almost has a denim look to it.
And it flows much better with the rest of the room now.
I figured if I totally screwed it up, I could always have it reupholstered.
A tufted ottoman probably wasn't the best piece to experiment on.
It was quite the challenge to paint the folds of the fabric.
but fortunately it turned out great!
I don't think I'll make a habit of painting upholstered furniture,
but giving this ottoman a facelift with paint was the perfect solution.
