Tufted ottoman. We wanted one that was the slightly lower profile and then we wanted one with a ledge because doing the piping is really difficult and unless, as a ledge to attach the staples to this upholstery, a project also calls for batting fabric spray. Adhesive, a tape measure marker fabric scissors, a button making kit and wax thread plus we’ll use Danish oil paper towels and gloves to clean up the wood legs in terms of tools grab a drill with a hole saw a saw or serrated knife and a staple gun. This coffee table is beautifully built, it’s solid, but it’s probably 50 or 60 years old. Let’s go ahead and just use some Danish oil we’re gonna. Take the 3-inch foam core we’re gonna lay it down on the table. We’ll put the coffee table upside down on top of it and we’ll trace around it, then we’ll cut the foam to that shape. With the foam marked it’s cutting time, our edge isn’t perfect, but it will all smooth out when we cover it with batting and fabric. Next, we spray the table with adhesive and carefully place.
The foam on top next we’re gonna do is measure the whole piece so that we can measure out where three buttons would be placed. Okay, you take that side. 58, all right. So it’s 58 divided by four. No one more me that mass would be involved in this project. After checking with a calculator we figure out our measurements and Mark the three buttonholes on the phone. So next step is so that when we drill it in so that the buttons will sync slightly in so that they look like they’re done now, you said this is not the easiest part of the project. Oh right, it’s not because the phone gets kind of stuck inside here, so you have to keep pulling it out, but let’s get to it, let’s see how it goes like cotton, candy machine doesn’t how’s it taste. We placed the table on the ground, so we can put more force on the drill as we go through the wood it takes some muscle, but were able to make three holes for our buttons all right. So next is the batting all right. You grab that side. I’ll grab this side so now we’ll flip it upside down. So the next part of the project is gonna, be attaching the baton, so you can do it at home if you don’t have a pneumatic gun with just a regular handheld staple gun, but just for the sake of time, we are going to use this one. You’re, just starting to show off all your fancy tools, you have your peg Bank. All right sounds good.
I know you’re not even spacing them by an inch. Okay, it’ll, hold it better. With our batting secured. We grab our stripe fabric, but before we staple it, we need to add our decorative buttons. You can buy a button kit they’re easy to make, and then you buy an extra long upholstery needle I’m gon na do one sure all right and then you’ll take these two strings and stick it through the hole in the needle and then you’ll just pull the needle back through just like that who knew I was so good with a needle and thread with our buttons in we flipped the bench over and get out the staple gun again. The first thing you’re gon na do is you’re gon na pull it kind of taught. You know with the first staple you don’t have to be too concerned, but the trick to this is you want to go in a zigzag so that the buttons stay put. The last part is to put the fabric on so you’re gon na start from the middle.
