Cast Iron Stove Base Ottoman

Cast Iron Stove Base Ottoman

This ottoman started as a rusted cast iron stove base.  After a good cleaning, I waxed the base with Fiddes Supreme Wax.  Then I cut a piece of plywood to fit.  Added new foam and dacron.  Then upholstered the top with fabric I made from scraps by sewing them in a harlequin pattern and ironing a stabilizing interlining to the back for durability.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Sherri Spear
