upholstered coffee table
My coffee table has seen better days. It no longer has the glass top, which is fine, because my oldest daughter loved to watch the milk drip from her sippy cup and pool under the glass in the wicker of the tabletop, and I broke the said glass one day when yelling at said daughter and slamming said sippy cup onto glass. I must admit, the spider effect of the broken glass was pretty cool, but a pain to clean up!

If you happen to have an equally ugly coffee table, let's think about turning that dinged up thing into an upholstered bench. With some new fabric, pretty paint, and a little hard work, you can create a one of a kind bench to suit your decor. The step by step instructions and detailed pictures should make it a snap to makeover the coffee table you have tried to hide from all your neighbors and friends.
