A Place for Husband

Or, at least, his feet.

Husband spends a lot of time in front of the computer at home, working away on his videos. We're talking four to five hour stretches staring intently at a computer screen, on top of his full time job, and treating me like a princess (of course). He puts a lot of work into his channel and I'm so proud of him for that. You're awesome, Husband! With all of his time at his desk, he wanted to be able to prop his feet up so he could be as comfortable as possible. My dad had gotten this ottoman a few years ago. Since he passed, it was no longer being used so my mom gave it to me. Have I mentioned how awesome it is to get free stuff? Because it is. Awesome.

Cat! I don't know why he always looks high in pictures. Lay off the nip, True.
It used to have some gold fringe but my parents cut it off. Smart parents.

I simply removed the legs. If I was going to paint them, this would have been the perfect time to do it. But, I preferred the wood look. Is that a look?

I picked up some cool fabric at a local fabric shop that was having a great sale. It was only $5 a yard. Nope, that's not a typo. $5 a yard! Thanks for showing me the place, Mom!

After a few hits with the staple gun, I have this!

This project took 15 minutes while watching TV. Gotta love those types of projects! For those who don't want to scroll (such as myself), here's a side by side of the before and after!

Now, Husband has a nice place to prop up his feet while he slaves away! I put the ottoman under his desk.

Oh. My. Word.
I'll We'll get right on that. Promise.
