Shabby chic ottoman is a versatile, eye-catching add to your home decor. Many ottomans has simple lines and neutral colors that could use a boost of color, graphics and accessories to make them the focal point of the furniture or expanding your decorating scheme. Decorate the Ottomans is a relatively simple and inexpensive process, so take some risks and try different haircuts, coating, finishing details and accessories. While accessorizing Ottomans, remember to prioritize the furniture functionality so that decorations do not impede comfort, portability and aesthetic value.
Clean your shabby chic ottoman. And then for fabric Ottomans, spray a mild fabric cleaner on a lint-free cloth and rub out stains, or use a spot of white vinegar diluted with water to refresh the fabric. If your ottoman has a wooden tray or trim, polish wood if you do not want to paint it. The oil in furniture polish impedes effective painting. Mild soap and water updates leather ottomans.
Repaint wooden parts of the shabby chic ottoman to brighten their look. Strip old paint or stains with paint remover. Gently sand the surface and clean off the dust with a lint-free cloth. Then apply a new finish. A wooden tray or trim looks completely different with a coat of antique whitewash or some Tuscan style patina. Then stick with a natural wood finish for a midcentury modern aesthetic.
