Make Sofa Out of a Coffee Table
Creating a cozy living room sofa out of an old coffee table can help you save money while also providing you with a nice piece of home décor. This project requires some basic tools and a few items from the hardware store, but it’s not that difficult of a process and the results can be quite stunning. Here’s how to do it:
What You Will Need
- Coffee table
- Upholstery springs
- Wood screws
- Upholstery fabric
- Staple gun
- Wood glue
Step One: Preparation
The first step is to get your egg-shaped coffee table ready for transformation. Start by sanding the wood until it’s completely smooth. This will ensure that the fabric doesn’t snag or crack when it’s stretched over the surface.
Step Two: Upholstery Springs
The next thing to do is to attach the upholstery springs on the underside of the coffee table. You should slide the springs onto the legs of the table, securing them into place with a few screws. Make sure they’re tightened down to the point where they won’t slip out of place.
Step Three: Foam and Fabric
Now it’s time to cut the foam and upholstery fabric to fit the surface of the coffee table. Cut it a few inches larger than the surface so that you’ll have excess material to fold and staple. Attach the foam to the surface of the coffee table with a bit of wood glue.
Once the foam is in place, cover it with the upholstery fabric and secure it with a staple gun. Make sure the fabric is nice and tight, and fold any excess fabric over the edges of the coffee table.
Step Four: Finishing Up
You’re almost done! Now all that’s left to do is to trim any excess fabric and vacuum the area to make sure any loose fibers have been removed. Once you’ve done that, your coffee table is now a stylish and comfortable sofa, perfect for your living room.
You can also add cushions to the seating area if you want to, just make sure they fit within the frame of the table without making it too bulky.
And there you have it—a coffee table transformed into a stylish and comfortable sofa!
