How to Upholster a Coffee Table

3 Days

I was so excited when I first saw this coffee, table that I had to have it. It had a perfect size and shape, plus it was affordable enough to re-finish and upholster.

I think the hardest part about this DIY, was to stay out of my comfort zone, which is neutral colors. I really wanted to make something bright and colorful. So, I spent almost 2hours of my Saturday afternoon at Joann's picking some fabric for this project, what a headache! But, I am glad I found some outdoor fabric at the end, that was not only bold and durable, it was also over 50% on sale (score...)
This table was super fun to work with, it was originally made by Gordon's Inc. in Johnson City, Tennessee
I marked each top with eight holes, where I later attached the buttons through.
The foam it attached with spay glue and batting is giving the edges a smooth feel.
I created a small animation for the main part of the tutorial, you can find more images and written step by step instructions on my blog.
