Can you show us a pic of your table, please?
Not always the best idea unless you reinforce it. coffee tables were meant for a few items to be on top. Many are not sturdy enough for people to sit on so make sure yours is if you plan to use it for something other than what it was built for.
Depending on the size of your coffee table, I would paint it and add a cushion to the top. You can buy bench cushions this time of year on sale and probably find one to fit that you don't have to make.
If, legs are strong enough, set against a wall and add cushions.
