Coffee table into an ottoman. So here’s what you’ll need to get started. A coffee table a pair of scissors spray, adhesive foam, Oh a staple gun, foam, padding, and fabric, so I began by actually cutting my coffee table down so that to make up for the difference that I’m going to add for the foam, then you want to spray A lot of spray adhesive on top of the table. You might want to do that part outside because it is pretty strong and it gets everywhere. Then I I’m piecing together the foam that I had that I used for the from the tufted headboard project and I just didn’t want to be wasteful and I didn’t want to spend another $ 30 on foam. So I decided that I was just gonna piece together what I had and it worked out perfectly and then I’m gonna spray. Another coat of the spray adhesive and the foam that you’re gonna see me lay down.
Next is a but the foam. For my fur, like under my bed um, I mean that for under my bed, for that goes in between, like your bed and your sheets, and I bought too much so like I bought the wrong size for my bed. So I just cut off the excess and put it on top of the coffee table and it worked out perfectly nice. You see me laying out the batting and basically stapling, that to the coffee table. So it’s gonna end up you’re gonna end up having a lot of excess cut, all of the excess off whatever you do not need to get rid of, because when you flip the table over gravity is gonna take over and all of that stuff is gonna hang – and it’s not gonna, look very nice once you flip it over. So just get rid of all the excess and you’ll end up. Seeing like this little kind of like wings or pouches on the side like around the table area, leave those and I’ll show you what to do it snakes, but this whole project took me about honestly. I was, I really only paid for the fabric because I already had the batting and the foam from the previous project.
The fabric came from Jo-ann fabrics calm but as you can see right here, I’m just taking the staple gun and stapling like the sides of the table so that that little pouch turn gets pinched together and then I’m going to get rid of that excess so that the fabric will lay evenly once I lay that down and you’re gonna do that for all four corners. Next, up, you’re gonna see the fabric laid out, and I stapled one side and we pulled the other side very tightly so that the fabric will lay evenly. Then I’m going to with the other three sides, basically take the fabric and kind of fold it into the batting to make it have like a really clean line. That way, I don’t have to worry about cutting anything extra. It’s just all tucked in and it looks very nice. You want to basically staple all the way down the length of that side and staple right up to about an inch away from the lake because you’re going to end up with an excess of fabric around the legs, as you can see here.
So what I did was basically cut on the inner side of the legs to kind of make like kind of break up the fabric, and I took those pieces that I could and folded them into the batting, as I did with the sides of the other three Sides of the coffee table to make you just have like that, smooth even finish, and basically it’s gonna look like you’re one short once it’s all done. It’s gonna look like you wrapped the coffee table legs, I’m sorry wrap the fabric around the coffee table. Legs, but all you did was just stapled. It then you’re going to you’re gonna do that for all four legs, then you’re gonna flip, the coffee table over and you’re gonna have this little excess on the side, as you can see here. So I just cut off what I didn’t need and you’re gonna fold. It like you, do like when you’re wrapping a present, so you’re gonna make like that 45-degree angle, into the smaller side of the table. Well, this is how I’m doing it. I’m making a 45-degree into the smaller side of the table and then I am like wrapping the excess fabric over that 45-degree angle and then I’m tucking the excess into that opening around the leg and then stapling.
