Reupholster Ottoman Zestin’

Hello Zesters!

Some of you may know, I recently moved! It has been a whirlwind of moving, catering weddings, being in weddings, and having family visit! Oh summer where art thou? Oh how I miss you…..sniff sniff. OK ok but in the mean time I have got a new crib to zest! Check out this ottoman, grrrrrrr- leopard. Although I am sure many of you can rock the leopard (ehhm my mother in law, Paula, is leopard queen, hence where I got this beauty) I think it clashes with my couch a tad. Shout out- Thanks Paula!!!! I needed something that wouldn’t compete with the couch texture, color, and was also durable. Ready for this??

Now it’s time to hit the fabric store, Beverly’s here I come!
