OK....I did not actually do this one but it was my idea!  I had an email asking about the ottoman at Maria's house and where it came from.

Here is how it went down.

Start with Kent Ottoman found at Ballard Designs Outlet on the cheap.
Now I like this piece but it is kind of low....only 15" high.

Purchase a cowhide [find em all day long on the internet].  Make sure it is large enough....check with your upholster on that.  We used a brindle.

Score some large casters....

You can find them at Home Depot and either have the upholster or "do it yourself"....which makes it a DIY right?

And there you have it....an ottoman that is higher and very durable.  Cause after all....cows live outside right?  

I am sure it can withstand anything you could throw at it.

While I might not actually be a crafty booger I think like one.

Next up today is the magazine with my sisters ORC is out.  Lisa Mowry and I along with Anthony-Matherson [photographers] had fun styling and singing oldies on this shoot.

I am happy to say that I covered 43-50 of the 100 ideas.

Anything I can do to help right?

This dirty face smoochie had to have a tooth pulled yesterday.

But I think she is having a good time on the pain meds.

I binged on Netflix with season 1 of this show...

It is filmed near Atlanta in Griffin, Ga. 
Season 2 just started.  
It's kind of slow [ so was House Of Cards in the beginning] but I really liked it. 

That's it.

Enjoy the weekend.

You are so creative and achieve so much with thriftiness (this sounds like a fortune cookie message :)

Congratulations to you an your sis on your feature. Hope your pup is feeling better. Tooth pain is the worst. My husband just starting watching that show as well and loves it. We tried House of Cards and couldn't get into it. Such a shame because we are big Kevin Spacey fans. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Sherry!

That's my sort of DIY. I'm thinking of adding casters to the ottoman I already have. I'm going to check out that show; my son is named Griffin. Happy weekend!!

"Rectify" just gets better. Will not a allow myself any binge-watching; have to make it last! Love how this show "feels" like it is truly in the south and not shot on a Hollywood back lot. Loved the post.
