I seriously love this make over and I am considering keeping it.
I started with a $20 coffee table that I bought from Kijiji. It is a Kroehler and has great bones. It’s also in great condition. With the addition of some foam, batting and fabric, it’s now a gorgeous ottoman.
Here is the table and the steps I took to make it over.
The nice thing about the overhang is that I didn’t have to damage the top to make this, so it can easily go back to the way it was.
I played around with the idea of tufting it, but really didn’t want to destroy the top. The size is 36” x 36”.
I used foam that was left over when I made new cushions for my patio set. I had to get creative with the cutting as I didn’t have one piece big enough for the entire thing.
I added two layers of batting to make it nice and soft.
The fabric that I originally wanted to use was a little too small, so I had to go to the fabric store. Lucky for me, the fabric was 50% off and I bought just enough to cover this, for $9.90. I toyed with the idea of painting the table before I even saw it, but I like the colour. I chose a very traditional fabric to work with the traditional style of the table.
I have to buy some gimp to go around the bottom to hide the staples, but otherwise I’m done.
