Gushing with excitement!

Just a quick post to share my joy at my lovely recovered Lloyd Loom Ottoman. 

I bought the ottoman from a carboot sale for £5 and it was in a bit of a state.  I cleaned it up and gave it lots of love and then went on a hunt for some fabric to recover the lid.  I found the fabric at yet another carboot sale for £2 and have enough left over for two cushions and maybe even another project!  I watched the Sound of Music the other day for the millionth time and just love the bit where Maria makes playclothes for the children out of her curtains!  As I'm not a governess I'm thinking bandanas for the dogs or bunting?
Anyway am gushing with excitement with how lovely my ottoman looks for the grand price of £7!!

  1. Loving the Lloyd Loom - I have been buying the gold pieces for ages now and have quite a few. I far prefer them to the ones that have been painted over and there are very few with the original paint. I love it when they have the date of manufacture on them too. (I also get very cross when I see people describing other woven furntiure as LL when it isn't!)£7 total? Vintage thrifting at its best!
