"I don't consider myself particularly crafty, but I have done all of my own renovations, like updating kitchens and baths, since I bought my first house in 2001," Roberts said. "I'm self-taught. I made a leather ottoman during residency based on a popular design being sold at Pottery Barn, which was all the rage at the time. I couldn't afford Pottery Barn, so I crawled around the store trying to look underneath it to see how it was made. It turned out great, tufting and all — pre-Pinterest days in good ol' 2002."
