How to Upholster a Round Coffee Table
Upholstering a round coffee table is the perfect way to give the piece new life and a cozy feel. With the right materials and a few simple tools, and a bit of patience and creativity, you can quickly transform your piece into something truly special. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you upholster your round coffee table:
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Your materials should include:
- Upholstery fabric
- Matching thread
- Utility knife
- Staple gun
- Foam pad
- Measuring tape
- Masking tape
- Rotary cutter
Step 2: Measure and Cut Your Fabric
To ensure the best fit, measure both the circumference and depth of your coffee table. Then, double the depth measurement and add it to the circumference measurement. Then add 10 inches to this total. This will be the width of fabric you need. After cutting the fabric to the size you determined, cut a strip of the fabric at least 10 inches long.
Step 3: Prep Your Table
Use your utility knife to remove the existing fabric from your table. If needed, use sandpaper to remove fabric glue and extra staples. Then, cut a piece of foam padding to the size of your table.
Step 4: Begin Upholstering
Starting at the bottom of the table, drape the fabric over the table and secure in place with staples. Work your way up the sides, gently pulling the fabric tight as you go. Staple the fabric in place around the entire edge of the table.
Step 5: Add Finishing Touches
Place a strip of masking tape along the edge of the staple line to ensure a finished look. Then, use the rotary cutter to trim away any excess fabric. Finally, use the matching thread and a needle to finish the edges with a neat stitch.
With these steps, you can easily upholster your round coffee table! By following this guide, you can quickly breathe new life into your piece, and it will be a timeless addition to your home.
