I've made a few changes. I have two of those ottomans. I covered one with Turquoise Rub n' Buff and the other with Gold Leaf Rub n' Buff. If you are new to my blog and not familiar with Rub n' Buff, it's a metallic wax. It comes in a little tube. You can buy it from most craft stores or online. It's really easy to use on leather and most everything else too (except for builder grade yellow brass fixtures, doesn't work so good on those). For these ottomans I squirted several pea size blobs of Rub n' Buff all over the top and sides then rubbed it in with a cloth. I just kept adding more until it was completely covered. Didn't need to seal them.
So the changes... I've gone gold! I swapped the turquoise ottoman for the gold one. I have Gold Leaf Rub n' Buff on the walls (stencil) and on the ottoman. Yes I'm a Rub n' Buff addict.
I love the new shades on my vintage brass lamps. Those are garage sale lamps I picked up for a whopping $5 bucks. Love them! I found the black shades at Lowe's for only $12.00 each. Not too shabby.
