This project was my first attempt at upholstery. It really wasn’t hard to make big it did take me awhile to learn how put the pleats in the top. I would like to furnish my house with all my own pieces

nice
what’s the underside look like?

I recently tried making a little foot stool with deer hide on the top. I couldn’t figure out how to put a bottom on it and hide the leather corners etc – which became really thick. I didn’t want sharp edges so put lots of stuffing on the sides as well.

Very nice! I think the correct name for this is a “Scottoman”.

I like it. Very ambitious to furnish your own house. I love my wife too much to put her through that. LOL

Hi Scott!
I just viewed your ottoman and I love it! You are not going to believe this, but I have the same fabric you used on all my windows! My Living room and dinning room are oriental and that is why I picked it. I think you did a great job on it. Congrats! Danette
