The Ottoman

Well I did it – I went with the grass ottoman. Pros: it looks lovely in the space and is just the right size.  Cons: it’s not a storage piece and the kids can’t sit and draw without a hard surface underneath. The bright side is that they’ll get into the habit of using a hard surface when they draw. Yes, I’ve harped on them about not gouging Papa’s table with their pencils…


I was craving a little texture and got it.  It’s casual, which feels just right these days. And storage, schmorage. I need to get rid of stuff!  Ah yes… a topic for another post.
