This is my first attempt at an ottoman, mostly I followed this awesome tutorial from Jenny over at
I hope you all had a great 4th of July. Around these parts people seem to think it's a good idea to have fireworks on the 3rd, which almost got rained out. I would have been extremely disappointed if we hadn't needed the rain more than a turtle needs his shell.
Then last night, armed with our $30 pack of fireworks from the grocery store. We set out to the driveway with our neighbors and let them go!
