Hey Sistas! Today I am excited to share with you guys my DIY fabric covered coffee table makeover. This was such a fun project and I loved the turnout so I wanted to share you with you guys!
So I had previously redid a coffee table that you can find here and loved it but it have pretty sharp corners on it so I decided I wanted something a little rounder on the corners. I still wanted it to be rectangle to work with the space in my house but I also wanted it to be fabric covered.
I found this piece on craigslist and I fell in love with it and also the price, it was only $15. #winning!
The first thing I did was sand it all down with my Orbit Sander to get the old finish off. If you are a DIYer it is so worth it to purchase a sander. I can’t even say how much easier it makes projects.
I then applied pre-stain to my table. If your staining something I would always use pre-stain on your projects. It goes along way so it last awhile. This one is my favorite kind to use.
Next, I applied my stain. I absolutely loved the color my table legs turned out. I love the rustic feel to them. I used Rust-Oleum wood stain in Drift wood, I could only find it at Hobby Lobby. I followed directions on the can and once it was finished drying I applied my Martha Stewart antique wax you can find it here. This is by far the best wax I have come across. I think it adds the perfect touch of color to my pieces.
Once I was done with the body of my table I started with the fabric portion. I measured the width and length of the area where I wanted to add fabric. I cut those dimensions out on a piece of plywood I had laying around with my Jigsaw.
I needed foam for the top of my board. I didn’t want to spend an arm and leg on foam so I decided to go with 3 in egg crate mattress pad that I had and it worked great! I sprayed adhesive to the board, lined up my egg crate, then wrapped batting over it and stapled it to the back of the board. I bought some cute fabric at Joann’s Fabric with my %50 off coupon. And wrapped and stapled just like I did with my batting.
Once finished with my fabric piece I position it where I wanted it on the table. With my mom sitting on top of the table I drilled in about 6 screws from the bottom of the table into the plywood. And TADA it was done!
I was so happy with the turnout. It goes perfect with our rectangular family room and color scheme. Hope you guys like it!
