DIY / Upcycling: Revamping My Ottoman

21st November 2015
A couple of weeks ago I decided to upcycle my blanket box to match my bedroom, after being inspired by a new technique I saw on an upcycling Facebook page.
My Ottoman Upcycle
It’s really simple, but the outcome (I think) is pretty stylish and bold! 
I used white chalk paint to coat the box lid and to brighten up the already-white panels, and then used a dark purple on the sides.

Once it was dry, I stuck strips of masking tape onto the lid to make lots of different sized triangles, and then painted them with two different shades of purple chalk paint.
Once it was dry I peeled the masking tape off and then sealed it with some clear sealant.
Easy or what?!

    It looks great. I love the idea of upcycling but I'm not very good at getting ideas for just what to do.
