Fifty Shades of Grey (and Yellow!)- Spare Room Makeover

As this is a spare room, we did a bit of upcycling and bargain hunting for it! There’s a few different shades of grey going on, but it’s ok!

The ottoman has had a couple of leases of life

I purchased it in 2009 on eBay and it was looking a bit worse for wear. I upcycled it once to the cream, more traditional Art Nouveau style but for this room I repainted it with the Polished Pebble and recovered the top with some left over fabric I had from our living room curtains. I just used a staple gun (as opposed to the more traditional braiding and nail method I used before) and it was just a quick, no more than 1 hour, job.
