$40 Craigslist Table Turned Chic Kid's Room Ottoman

I've had this idea percolating for AGES and finally had a reason to make it! This coffee table from Craigslist is finally OUT of the garage and made over for my daughter's room. And we both looooooove the new and improved 'look'.

This Craigslist coffee table looked A LOT different when I picked it up last fall...

I picked up this coffee table for $40 on Craigslist with an upholstery purpose in mind... it only took 7 months to do it!

This kantha cloth from India is one of my favorites and I've been eager to find a reason to use it! I found this one on etsy... I love the colors!
I cut a large piece of foam to fit the top of the coffee table.
I didn't want the dark finish on the coffee table, so I sanded it down to reveal the lovely raw wood.
