Ever since I saw this floating around the Internet, I've been dying to make one...A coffee table converted into a Pet Bed...What a great idea!!! Anyway it wasn't hard to get Autumn on board (If it has to do with pets...she's in)!! So we hit some garage sales and ended up with two tables...I think we'll paint the next one black. :)
|Calico really likes this idea!|
This is the first one we found...it was in grate shape and only cost $5.00....Because really.....who would want a fake wood Formica tables out of the 70's????
We took the doors and the magnets that kept them shut off and then filled the holes with Glazing Putty (It was what we had around the house...after all my Son and Husband are "Motor Heads"...and they said "It will work great!!
Next step was to paint it with a primer (Zinsser, Cover Stain Primer).
Just one coat.
I then painted it with three coats of Valspar's Premium Decorator Enamel in Dover white.
To make the cushion I measured the inside of the table...Then using the old string and pen trick made marked and cut out a circle to fit...sew...fill TA-DA Done. :)
I must say we are sooo happy with the finished project and are planning to move it to Autumns room... a night stand for her and a get away for Callie. :)
