Coffee Table Turned Bench
Hey guys!!! In today's blog I will share with you how I turned a thrift store coffee table into extra seating for my home.
Let's break down the cost first:
Coffee Table $12
Fabric $10 ($5 a yard)
Foam Cushion $20 (local fabric store)
Paint $7 (1 quart)
Total:$49 (not too bad) I would have paid triple if I purchased this brand new
Here is the before and after of the bench. When I originally purchased this coffee table I knew right away that I would turn it into additional seating. I also loved that it had storage.
Here is my terrible priming experience. I actually had some primer that was on the brink of going bad. It was sticky and a mess. The frugal side of me did not want it to go to waste.
After you prime and paint the bench you want to work on your foam and fabric.
1. The first thing you need to do it cut your foam to fit the bench.
2. After you cut the foam down to size you need to place the fabric on top of it . In this photo you can see that I let the fabric hang over just a bit. This is because you want to pull the fabric tightly and staple it to the wood.
3. Make sure you staple all the fabric to the wood. I put at least 5-7 staples on each section of the bench. I wanted to ensure that it was secure.
Here is the final product and for only $49!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will be putting wheels on this soon so that it moves about freely!!!
