Saving Ottoman

At some point while I was in college my parents bought me a chair and ottoman set. They have seen a lot of love, some of it tough. Rowen is in his "Let's Eat Everything" stage and I knew I had to get the ottoman covered for his health. It's still structurally sound, so I couldn't bear to just throw it away.
So, I made a nice slip cover for it this weekend with 10$ worth of decorator fabric from the fabric store. Here's the before and after shots.
For those interested in such details I used a little over 1 yard of fabric, (it's a big ottoman) reinforced the seams and left the last 2 inches open on the bottom of the vertical side seams to aid taking on and off.
