Before & After: Round Ottoman

Our local thrift store, Community Closet, gave us this old torn ottoman, which we rebuilt to ‘new’ condition, and donated back to them to raise money for their community support program. The new ottoman does have casters, not shown in the ‘after’ photo.

A bit of extra stuffing, new vinyl covering and a new button brought new life to this 60s ottoman

Community Closet distributes its profits to charitable activities in the local community – including scholarships, educational programs, youth programs, support of existing non-profit organizations/special programs and more. Check them out at “where fashion meets philanthropy”.

    Carla, beautiful website and work. As you know from my blog I have a true appreciation for reclaimed furnishing and decor. Not only is recaliming green etc., it makes for a much more interesting home!

    I am glad Colleen posted your orange ottoman on FB, I was drawn to it imediately. Tracy

    Thanks Tracy – I agree, it’s so fun to get creative with things that have a history. Carla
