Upcycling a Wicker Coffee Table

Donna Arsenault
by Donna Arsenault
I have had this old, plastic, wicker coffee table for a while. It has a burn mark on the top, and the top wasn't sturdy enough to put a glass. But the frame is actually metal and the structure is strong.
I spray painted the table silvery grey. The cut a piece of pressed board to fit the top. I used a piece of upholstery foam, some quilt batting and some lovely grey tartan to make a covered bench cushion. Added a few covered buttons to match and Voila! I have a new bench for the entry.
When I can, I will find a couple of baskets to put on the shelf for gloves etc.
