How to makeover an ottoman with one tube of paint!
Last summer at CHA, my good friend Rebecca Peck introduced me to the team at The Upholstery Studio. They had me decorate a footstool for an hour in their booth, here is what it looked like (I'm at the 2:15 mark):
I started with black marker, filled in with color and then Tulip Shimmer paints and Beads in a Bottle.
They were so nice to me, they sent me a white denim storage ottoman for my art room. You can order one as well and cover with your own fabric or have them make it for you. I didn't know what to do with my new treat, it was just too fantastic!
I kept it simple - I used one tube of my tried and true Tulip 3D Black Slick Paint and just...doodled! You can lightly sketch with a pencil first or just dive in, that's what I did.
You can do this with any smooth fabric surface. You don't always have to go for the cray-cray, you know? Sometimes simple is cool. Yes, people for me - this is my version of simple...
Go be shiny,
