Upholstering a Glass Coffee Table
If you’re looking for a creative way to add some warmth and texture to your home, consider upholstering a glass coffee table. Upholstering a glass coffee table is not as intimidating as it may sound. With a few supplies and a bit of elbow grease, you can have a stunning, custom piece of furniture that will add a unique flair to your home.
Gather Your Supplies
To get started, gather the supplies you’ll need to upholster your glass coffee table. You will need:
- Upholstery fabric of your choice
- Foam padding
- Batting (this adds softness)
- Staple gun
- Scissors or knife
- Tape measure
Preparing the Coffee Table
Once you have all of your supplies, you are ready to start prepping the coffee table. Start by cleaning the surface with a damp cloth. This will help ensure that your new upholstery material adheres more securely.
Next, you’ll measure the top of the table and cut a piece of foam padding slightly larger than your measurements. This will provide a cushion between the glass top of the table and the upholstery fabric you will be using.
Adding the Upholstery Fabric
Now that the table is clean and the foam padding is cut, the next step is to add your upholstery fabric. Lay your fabric out on a flat surface and center the foam padding on top of it. Then, fold over the fabric and wrap it around the foam padding.
Secure the fabric around the foam padding by using a staple gun. Make sure you are stapling every few inches, being careful not to staple too tightly so that the fabric does not damage the table.
Secure the Batting
The next step is to add the batting. Lay the batting out onto the table, making sure it is centered and smooth. Then, wrap the batting around the edges of the table and staple it into place.
That’s it! You are almost done. Finally, trim any excess fabric or batting around the edges of the table. When you’re finished, you will have a beautiful, custom piece of furniture that will be the centerpiece of your living space.
Upholstering a glass coffee table is a fun, creative way to bring some warmth and texture to your home. With a few supplies and a bit of effort, you can transform an ordinary table into a stunning showpiece.
