Go ahead, put your feet up!

I finally have a redo project to show you, although my crafty mom deserves all the props (hence the reason she gets the bamboo Chippendale chair from the last post!).  Remember my galvanized tub from a WHILE back.  I wanted to add a tufted top and turn it into an ottoman. 

Well here is a reminder:

And after my mom did a little of this and a little of that....

We have this!

I wanted the top to come off for storage inside because who doesn't need extra storage!?!

I put about 5 screws (leave the screw sticking way up) around the inside to keep it from sliding off if someone puts their feet on it.  I'm not explaining that very well but hopefully you get the gist.

I'm really happy with how it turned out but have no where to put it so... I will be putting it for sale in one of my booths whenever I can shake my kids and get over there alone.

Hope you like and I hope everyone has a wonderful start to the New Year!!!

Linking up here!
