I tend to have a hard time throwing things away. My brain is always seeing creative ways it can be revived, repurposed or reused. I guess I'm rubbing off on my family because this project was requested/inspired by my sister.
My niece went away to college this year 😭 and as hard as it was to see her go, the excitement of decorating her dorm helped assuage the pain for my sister and I. I think it was reminiscent of decorating for all those birthday parties for us. Anyway!
My sister brought me this little ottoman she had been using for years that had gotten a little banged up in her last move. It was super sturdy just had started peeling. My sister thought it could be spruced up and useful for her daughter's dorm. She was right.
