This post is sponsored by Calico. Today our guest room got a new look. I realized recently that I have a lot of ottomans. They tend to multiply around here. I like to put my feet up, so I guess I just assume everyone else does also.
I had 3 of these in the girls’ bedroom at one time (below) and made burlap slipcovers for all three. Later I changed the square ottomans out for lavender benches at the end of each bed. The room with the three beds is getting a big makeover coming soon. I think you are really going to love it If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a sneak peak. One of the ottomans ended up in my bedroom and I already made a slipcover for it. If you want to see my other square ottoman slipcover or you want instructions for making the slipcover shown today, CLICK HERE.
I took one of the square ottoman and added it to our guest room shown below. I love the Justina Blakeney Suz fabric in Indigo I used for the kitchen stools, CLICK HERE. I decided to use the same pattern Justina Blakeney fabric Suz in the color Blush for this project. The soft colors go so well with the chair slipcover I made a few months ago, CLICK HERE.
The beauty of slipcovers is that they are perfect for marrying two pieces of furniture that weren’t meant to go together. I think the ottoman underneath the slipcover is quite unattractive. If you can sew, it means you can buy something with unattractive fabric and recover it yourself. Since the fabric on the ottoman is unattractive, it was very reasonably priced.
I really do like to put my feet up so, this is perfect for me. I record our podcast DECORATING TIPS AND TRICKS in this room, so the otttoman makes it much more comfortable.

This fabric is liquid and stain resistant so it’s perfect for kids and pets, or moms that like to put their feet up.

I recently remade new slipcovers for my recliners. I agree that slipcovers are fun and practical!
Such a great idea Liberty!!!
Your rooms are always so lovely and put together. I’ve slip covered a large ottoman once and tried my hand at slip covering a chair. It’s definitely a solution to buying new furniture or just to change things up.
Quite original interior decor, it has a great style.
May I ask where you found the rug in this gorgeous room.? I love the chair and the fabrics.
It was discontinued. Sorry, not sure where you can get it now. I bought it about 6 years ago.
I purchased one from Decor Steals last year. Mine is a bamboo mat. I wasn’t sure about it but I love it. A part of it is in a high traffic area of my dining room. Still looks brand new. This room is so pretty.
Yes, they hold up well!
All I can say is, absolutely fabulous!
Love the whole room. Where did you get that rug ? I LOVE it. I saw a similar one a couple of years ago in a shop but of course it’s no longer there. I’ve tried to look online for one but not sure exactly what search terms to use. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
