Hi friends! Happy almost the end of May – can you believe it?
This year is flying by so fast!
I have a treat for you today – it’s Themed Furniture Makeover day where my furniture loving friends and I share our latest makeovers.
This month’s theme is Red, White, or Blue.
I guess you can figure out what direction I went with this one…
It all started when came across this coffee table at a local garage sale. I have been searching for the perfect coffee table for y e a r s (yes years) and this one fit the bill.
It was in perfect condition, sans the glass, and I was super excited that the owner was marking the price down from $20 to $10. Cannot beat that!
I painted it with Waverly Chalk Acrylic paint in white.
This picture shows it with just one coat.
I then lightly distressed it on the edges and sealed it with clear Polycrylic Satin. Note: sometimes the poly will yellow the white paint a bit but I actually wanted it that way for this table as I wanted it to look a bit more “aged”.
Now on to the ottoman top.
I gathered my materials:
1″ Project Foam
Thin Batting (not shown)
Off White Fabric
I layered the materials as shown and then used spray glue adhesive to lightly bond the items together. I wrapped the plywood with fabric and stapled it to the back with a staple gun. I then screwed the entire seating onto the coffee table from the underside, making it into the perfect ottoman seating.
I love the creamy antique white.
I love the distressing.
I did Not love the fabric (although I do think it’s pretty). It just seemed bla to me once I saw the final product and it was so thin that it showed every crease and bump.
I then found a creamy thicker upholstery fabric.
It doesn’t have as much detail to it but it’s soft and now will go well with my overall vision for it in my space: my Master Bedroom.
Excuse the various color tones, it is very difficult to photograph anywhere in my house in this room.
Hence the reason why I usually photograph my furniture makeovers outside.
