On a serious note and not because I feel the need to punish inanimate objects, I wanted to re-purpose the coffee table because it's a nice solid piece of furniture and I wanted a bench anyway in my kitchen. Speaking of that kitchen. It is coming along very nicely and I only have two more projects to complete before the grand unveiling! In the mean time though, I'll give you a sneak peak of the area I added the completed bench to.
First, you may want to paint that coffee table. That's a great place to start. Fortunately for me, my coffee table was already painted thanks to projects I had on my nesting list from last summer.
Center the board and foam over the wrong side of the fabric.
The short sides require a fold to make it look nice.
Continue to staple until everything is secure.
I have a little drawer in my coffee table, so I took this time to add a little flare, by fixing a crystal knob on the drawer front.
I think this little addition dresses this little baby up just enough. It says "hey I like to be formal, but I also like to party" you know like a mullet.
Here's my new bench in my old kitchen. My sweet checks are lovin' this one.
