Alyssa of Baroque Chair Makeover fame is back with her latest project — transforming a $10 eBay mushroom ottoman from the 70s into a stylish and cute accent piece... From Alyssa: The story of the “Stinky Mushroom” gets its origins from the Greek “Fungus foulsmelicus.” Actually, this do-it-yourselfer’s-dream sprouted up on Ebay for $10 and it was love at first sight. “It will go perfectly with our new Thomas Wold Mushroom Table!” I thought to myself… but unfortunately it wasn’t love at first sniff when I opened the box 2 weeks later! It smelled heavily of smoke and had stains all over it, but you get what you pay for! So the day dawned on a new project… Check out her project on her blog: Before and After – Stinky 70s Mushroom Stool. Thanks, Alyssa!
