DIY Coffee Table Into Cushioned Bench
I always wanted a cushioned bench but never found one I absolutely loved in stores. So I took a trip around to thrift stores and found this lovely coffee table that I could use to turn it into a big one!
Most of the damage to it is a bunch of scratches on top of the table, and luckily, I won't even have to bother sanding them out since it will be covered.
First thing I did was buy my supplies. I picked up some foam and fabric from Joann Fabrics and spray paint. The legs were in good shape so I didn't need to sand anything down so I got right to cleaning it and spray painting.
I used a staple gun to position the foam and cut off the extra length. Then I centered the fabric and folded under the frayed edge to keep it secure.
