Old Coffee Table Turned Into a Bench

We found this old coffee table at a flea market, it has been sitting outside for a while the only part that was messed up was the top which was warped and had some water damage to it.
The bottom part of the table was sturdy and in good shape just needed cleaning up. so what we did was painted the base in Annie Sloans Chalk Paint in old ochre.
After that we distressed it a good bit then waxed it. We also found a french burlap fabric for the seat.
For the seat we reused the top that it had but it cut down a little on the corners to make it closed to the base added the foam and the fabric than stapled it and screwed it back on. And here it is now turned into a bench.
