Annie lives in San Francisco and works at a number of creative freelance jobs - she is an assistant to an interior designer, a senior sales associate at Jonathan Adler and she blogs on her site, Poetic and Chic. She sent us photos of her creative solution for making an ottoman slipcover - jump below for the colorful "after":
Here's what Annie had to say: When I mentioned that I wanted to re-upholster or even sell my ottoman, the designer I work for suggested making my own slipcover. Since I sew quite a bit, I had brought home a number of discontinued fabric swatches from the Jonathan Adler store (both JA & Maharam) and thought these might do the trick.
After a bit of tinkering and working the patches, I came up with a fun and colorful design that really improves the whole room. I thought the grommet rings that were a part of each swatch added a cool bit of texture, so I left them in... Overall, I'm very excited it worked out so well! I love that the boring, drab medallion fabric is now done away and that there's something new, bright & modern in its place.
