For a long time I had the table sitting around awaiting its makeover. Well, during my time of absence I DID complete a few projects. This was one of them. Let me share this little beauty’s transformation.
This is what the original table looked like before it’s paint job…
Poor little thing… it was painted so perfectly, and then got all scratched up on the way back into the house…
First I gathered my supplies: Padding, old plastic tablecloth (to be used for waterproofing just in case something spilled or I needed to clean the fabric), and decorative fabric. I also had a staple gun, electric knife (yes, you read that correctly), glue gun, and some decorative cording.
I placed the padding on top of the table so I could cut it to the correct shape. (The box of books on top of the table was just to hold the padding in place.)
I used the electric knife to cut the padding (it was really thick, so I found that the electric knife worked best.)

Once I had secured all of the fabric to the table I covered up the staples and finished it off by hot gluing black cording around the entire table.
I reattached the hardware and TA DAAAAH… FINISHED!!!! Oh baby… I love it!!!!
All that was left to do was to decorate the top of the
I LOVE my table. Not to brag, but people can’t believe that I did it all by myself. Not only does it look good, but it also gives us a nice cushioned place to prop up our feet after a long hard day!!
