before and after :: coffee table turned ottomanSaturday, March 3, 2012 15:49
here’s my most recent before and after project. it started off with a coffee table in awful shape, but with nice lines.
yikes! lots of work needed here. i got the foam from a garage sale and cut it to the size of the table. i pained the entire table a bright golden yellow to match the floors in our adjoining sunroom. i bought some fabric from the local fabric store and got to work. i actually covered the foam in a layer of inexpensive fabric first to make sure any imperfections in the foam didn’t come through on the finished project.
i went to work sewing the final cover and piping the edges.
i finished it off with some aqua buttons for tufting to ensure the fabric wouldn’t move around with our feet up on it all the time.
