How to Upholster a Glass Coffee Table

Upholstering a glass coffee table can add a beautiful, homey touch to any living room – here’s how to do it:

Tools and Materials:

  • Glass table
  • Foam for padding
  • Fabric for upholstering
  • Glue gun
  • Staple gun
  • Hair dryer

Step 1: Prepare the Glass Table

Start by wiping down the glass table with a clean, damp cloth to remove any dust or debris. If your table is particularly dirty, use some glass cleaner to make sure it’s spotless.

Step 2: Cut and Attach the Foam Padding

Cut the foam padding to fit the shape of the glass table. Use a glue gun to attach the foam. Use a hair dryer to soften the foam while you work, this will make it easier to fit.

Step 3: Cut and Attach the Fabric

Measure and cut the fabric to have a few inches of extra fabric on each side then iron it to get rid of any wrinkles. Use a staple gun to attach the fabric to the padding. Make sure to pull the fabric tight while you work.

Step 4: Trim the Excess Fabric and Stylishly Finish Up

Trim the excess fabric along the edge of the glass table. To finish off the upholstering, use the glue gun to create a “fringed” edging at the base of the table for a stylish touch.

You’ve now upholstered a glass coffee table! Enjoy the beauty of your new stylish living room accent.
