Upcycle - Recycle - Relove


This ottoman is not as bad as a some we have revamped before but it was super boring and out dated.


I thought it would be the perfect project for the ottoman I mentioned in this blogpost about recycling fabric and clothing with knitted fabric.
I cut the strips of fabric and knotted them together to become a kind of yarn.


And Mum knitted for many days, I had to make a new supply of fabric strips everyday, we used a ton of fabric but still our scrap basket don't seem to get emptier at all!


We choose the colors according to a vintage kilim which I wanted to used for the top.


While Mum was knitting the sides I peeled off the old upholstery, sanded, painted and varnished the feet and added new webbing and foam.


Time for the fun part; dressing up!


You see at the back side of the fabric how many pieces of fabric we used with all the knots.


Tadaaaa! I love the result!
The kilim is so pale because it has been faded by the sun making it very pastel which I like.


With fluffy trim in between the kilim and knitted fabric to bring them all together.


This one of a kind ottoman is now available at StarHomeStudio among other one of a kind furniture.


And we are planning to make cushions in an attempt to shrink the stash of rags :D

New Family Member



We have a new family member. With already 10 dogs we didn't really 'need' another one but she happened to just be a dislocated family member who now found her home :)


She is a terrier and sausage mix, and has a super long body with short legs and a very funny walk. She is super sweet and the rest of the pack was very quick to accept her. She came last Friday and not even a week later she is completely at home. Like all the other family members she is adopted, we are all for the 'adopt, don't shop' movement :)


We called her Lulu and we already love her :)
