We’ve been waiting to do this for a while and we finally pulled the trigger.
This is what we started with.
I got two layers of 2″ foam, sprayed adhesive to stick them together. Then here is the genius part:
Get a cheap piece of fabric and wrap your foam to your table top. Some folks will tell you to spray the foam to the table top. I didn’t do that because if we ever want the table top back – we can do that.
So here is what it look like at this point:
Corners were a bit tricky but Amy knocked them out. I wish I could tell you exactly how she did it – just think Christmas present wrapping. That’s how she did it.
Using the cheap piece of fabric as a trial run was so helpful because we got the batting and foam exactly like we wanted. Once we got it perfect – we moved on to our real fabric.
We unscrewed the legs off the table and put on the fabric using an electric staple gun. By the way – went to Harbor Freight and picked up a $19 electric staple gun. Best money spent. Air compressor gun would have been awesome but I don’t have an air compressor.
Now we have a coffee table we can put our feet on without our legs falling asleep. Just in time for the Alabama game.
