Almost Done!

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of the new rug I purchased for my family room.  I mentioned that I was almost finished with this room.  I was just waiting for the ottoman, valances and a few more pillows.  There is a little story behind the ottoman.  I should say BIG story!  You'll see what I mean when you see the before picture!  I ordered the first one quite a few months ago.  When it came and the men put it place it looked like a flying saucer landed in my family room!  I think I said to them "What the heck is that"?  They said I don't know but it sure is big!   I said "YOU THINK"? After waiting all that time I was a tad (okay a lot) disappointed.  That wasn't the only issue with it.  The quality of the shirred skirt was very inferior.  They didn't line it and the gathering was very poorly done.  It was very shocking!  I called the store and told them about it.  They were shocked when they saw the pictures of it.  Kendall, the sweetheart that has helped me with all my projects contacted a gentleman locally that agreed to make a completely custom one for me.  She called me last week the minute it arrived at the store!  I was there within 30 minutes!  I couldn't believe my eyes!  What a beautiful job he did!  The first one was sitting on there floor not too far away.  I just kind of looked at it and chuckled!  I'm pretty sure I don't have to ask you which one looks the best!  




It looks like something landed in my family room doesn't it?


The new beautiful one!

  5. Hi Denise, Boy, that first one was HUGE! It looked like it could devour your poor chair, lol :) The second, and more beautifully done, ottoman look MUCH better! Can't wait to see the room when you have it all finished; I know it will be just beautiful :) Though it already looks lovely as it is now!

    Have a great day, and upcoming weekend!

    Warmest hugs, Brenda
