Restore Round Table

A few weeks ago, I purchased this round table at the Habitat for Humanity Restore for $10.   I loved the size of the table but what really sold me were the legs.  They are solid brass making the table very heavy. 


When I brought it home I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with it.  After placing it in the living room,  I knew right then and there what I was going to do ….. make an ottoman using the table…..and that’s just what I did. 


I sprayed painted the legs because I wasn’t crazy about the brass. 


I hot glued the pleated trim on top of the table and then added the padding. 


I’m sorry but I didn’t take pictures of the following steps because I was working like mad and just simply forgot until I was almost finished.   For the padding,  I bought a foam mattress pad at Wal-Mart.  It was a lot cheaper than buying foam at Jo Ann’s.   I tufted the center with a button.      


I stapled the fabric around the sides of the table and then hot glued the trim around the sides.


So far, we’ve enjoyed having the extra seating especially  when we play Wii. 

Thanks for stopping by and may your day be filled with all the happiness it can hold.

  5. What a great find. Love that you added the padding. Looks great!!

  6. OMG!! I love it!! Especially the dragonfly material you used. I am a major dragonfly lover! Would you mind sharing where you purchased the fabric? I'm gonna be on the lookout for a similiar table to try this idea on. It's fabulous!

  7. Looks great. Fantastic job.

  8. Gail, that is so cute. I have got to check and see if we have one of those stores here. Surely we do. We worked on a Habitat for Humanity house a few years ago. Everyone finds the best stuff there. Thanks again for joining the party.

  9. Hi Gail! Oh, who would have thought? You did a spectacular job! I love it and the way you've covered it with the coordinating fabrics looks so pretty!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  10. Hi Gail,
    What a perfectly lovely stool you have!!! I love it and you did a great job on it. It looks like it belongs in that room, too.
    Hugs, Cindy

  11. Gail that is a great idea and it looks amazing! I have a few pillows in that fabric and love them! Just beautiful!

  12. Oh, what a great idea! This is a darling little ottoman, now! Neat way to add a ruffle. I've never seen one done that way. I like it!

    Take care,
    Michelle :)

  13. What a charming ottoman, Gail! Such a great project!

  14. Great Job! I Love It!!

  15. I love it Gail. Beautiful done, and it's just perfect for the area when the sectional meets.

  16. Oh my goodness! I just bought a round table from Craigslist to do this exact project! Thanks for the hint about the mattress pad instead of the foam from the fabric store! I am definitely going to do that as I have some new chair pads to make too! Your ottoman looks great....hope mine turns out that good!!!

  17. What a great use for that table!! The ottoman you created from it is just gorgeous! I love the fabrics.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  18. That is such an awesome idea, I may have to steal it!!
