A Zebra Can't Change It's Stripes, But a Zebra Ottoman Can Change It's Legs!

I like animal prints. It's one of my "signatures", if you will. Tasteful and luxe animal prints, of course. I got a fab deal on a zebra ottoman from a very unexpected place. Here's the story:

Inspired by this...

Decor pad

...I found this...

Z Gallerie Huntington Ottoman, $599 aka Too Much

...But then found this for $79...

Walmart Alisha Ottoman (no longer available, kids)

Then it went on sale for $49.99. Word.

Ordered it Site to Store (free shipping)...

...Spray painted the legs black (why were they even brown in the first place???)...

Introduced it to the Pier 1 sunburst mirror. They really hit it off!

Sorry for the crappy Iphone pic. Stephan is out of town with the camera and I can't find the backup camera...

Now I just have to frame our old master bath mirror to lean behind it. The question is, go GOLD framing like the inspiration photo, or BLACK, or WHITE?????

What's your vote?


  1. I think black would really pop on those walls!

  2. I would have said gold but you have a sorta gold star burst next to it. I agree. Go BLACK!

  3. PS- please come to my house. It needs serious help.

  4. Beautiful ottaman ~ great find!! I would say either black or silvery gold for the mirror. I scared of full-blown gold :)
