Today I have an amazing project to share. If you haven't already seen the fabulous Little Green Notebook blog, you have to check it out. Jenny is a busy mom, who enjoys home decor on a budget. Her ideas are pretty practical and beautiful. Plus, she is a fabric hoarder as well.
If you read this fun blog you will be sure to get some great inspiration, some laughs, and some great nudges in the direction of some sales. Jenny is easy to read and she keeps me inspired.
So today I'm going to share one of my favorite projects from Little Green Notebook!

2. Resting feet on.
3. Hiding underneath (and getting stuck underneath.)
5. Gathering around for family prayer.
6. Using as a bridge in jumping from couch to chair to couch.
And the amazing thing is that I can easily re-cover this with new fabric when I change my style, which I inevitably will. I'm already looking at these options:
So many fabrics and only one ottoman.
I love this ottoman! Thanks, Jenny, for a wonderful way to add fabric finesse to my home!
