So I haven't been sewing lately been on a house decorating mission. I have wanted a bench for the house in Charleston for a while now. I saw this on Crate&Barrel for 799. Gorgeous right?
I look at Pinterest every chance I get for ideas, saw where someone did this. I found a coffee table on Craigslist for 20.00. Sorry I didnt take a before we chopped the table pic. Sort of had the lines. After putting it together I found that I should have purchased the foam in 2 sizes 1/2 inch for sides (or none at all) and 3 inch for top.
The foam cost more than the table. If you decide to do this. When you purchase your foam you need to purchase 3 inch foam for the top and no foam or very thin foam for the sides. I also used quilters batting so that my glue seams would not show through the velvet.
I had some brown velvet in my stash. I am looking for another table to re-purpose.
