Sometimes I surprise myself - I'm not a "craft" kind of person (although my embroidery skills are pretty good) but I have a Lloyd Loom ottoman from the 1950's - it was in my bedroom from when I was about ten and has moved with me through the years and is now here in our bedroom.
It used to be the original Lloyd Loom pastel green with a green tapestry padded seat - sometime in the late seventies/early eighties I painted it black and re-covered it - it's lasted really well but yesterday I decided it needed a "refresh".
It's still black but I bought some foam and some new padding and used a piece of fabric that I found at Mum's and re-covered it - now I have an ottoman that is probably 60+ years old (that originally belonged to my Mum and Dad) and it's sporting a new seat with some of Mum's fabric - how nice is that for memories!
I took me about four hours but I think it's turned out well.
I suspect I have slashed the value but the value of memories are more important than the value in hard cash.

I had to stand on a stepladder to take this from above to get it all in shot - lol! The things we do for blip, eh?
