Hello! You guys will remember the telephone table I inherited for free:
and some of the idea’s I was toying around with from this post.
I stumbles across this photo recently via Etsy and LOVE it.
I love the simple colors and shiny gray paint. I plan on doing something similar to mine. So I started the project the other night.
So this is the before again.
And a close up of the worn top, complete with water rings
First things first, I needed to remove the seat to be recovered
easy enough, only a few screws
then I lined the cushion with white felt, it is what I had on hand and would cover the old pattern on the seat as well as hopefully make it a little softer
then I pulled out my staple gun and scissors and got to work wrapping the cushion like a present
doesn’t that cushion look fabulous? (BTW: I got that fabric from Target a few years ago for $5.00 in the college section and it has served me very well)
Next, I sanded down the wood and tried to get as many of the imperfections out as possible
so that’s all for now, I need to pick up paint and get the thing painted for Part 2. See ya in a few days!
