Makin' It Monday-Pincushion Ottoman

Remember that old brass flower pot I found at a thrift store?

It wasn't that attractive, and I had plans to make it more appealing!

I had seen a tutorial for an upholstered bucket ottoman at Killer B design. I thought this was an awesome idea and knew immediately it would be a great outside stool/storage piece for my sister-in-law.

So, I spray painted, glued, cut, covered, and sewed to end up with this...

My SIL has some black lockers on her screened porch, so I thought that would be the perfect color for the pot.

I new she loved red, and I had some great red fabric that fit the bill perfectly. Come to find out she just got some cushions that are red with some black and white polkadots.

This turned out to be a great birthday present for her, and hopefully a functional one too!

Happy Crafting!
