|West Elm Butterfly Shower Curtain: $39.|
|Biggest needle ever.|
|Covering the ottoman.|
|Scotch Gard-ing the ottoman to within an inch of its life.|
|Making the buttons.|
|Measuring the tufts.|
The tufting process itself consisted of drilling through the cardboard base of the ottoman at pre-measured intervals, then fishing the enormous upholstery needle through the cushion, threading the button, then fishing it back through four inches of foam to find the teeny-tiny drill hole. Which it sometimes took 10 minutes to find. And eight of the times I did this, the button popped, and I had to start completely over. Needless to say...this was really aggravating.
