Coffee Table Bench

I made this bench for my mom for a Christmas present. I wish I had taken a before picture but unfortunately I forgot so you'll just have to use your imagination, picture dark brown and kind of beat up. This was actually an old coffee table before. I found it for only $5 at the thrift store! At the time I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it (like most of the things I buy), but it was only $5 and that was too good of a deal to pass up! You could do this to any coffee table to add some extra seating in your living room. All I did was attach some two inch foam, batting, and material to a piece of 5/16 inch OSB board using a staple gun. Then I drilled some holes through the top of the table and screwed the upholstered piece into place. Here it is in my mom's bedroom.


It's hard to tell from the picture but the legs had really cool detailing on them...
