I was however, very happy that JoAnn Fabrics had a 50% off coupon this weekend that included...wait for it...high density foam rubber! The two inch thickness is what I needed and it's usually $32.99 per yard and I needed two yards, so...score!
Y'all remember this photo from a previous post about our bonus room?
Yes, that's our former old, pine coffee table with a miter saw contraption anchored to it that's been in hibernating in our bonus room since we moved into our new home back in March of 2007.
But not anymore, the transformation has begun.
I shared with y'all my plans for it and I've been hunting fabric to match our roman shades.
Now, no computer can capture the exact colors of anything because all our monitors/laptop displays are different, but the "red" in the shades is a cross between a burgundy red and a Spice color. There's also olive green, taupe, cream and the pumpkin color (that's on the walls) in the shades and I wanted the fabric for the ottoman to somewhat match this...and it does, to a "T", yay! The colors in the roman shade and the fabric I bought look different on my computer, but, "in real life" they match.
I'll share with you what we've done so far.
Here she sits, all dismantled.
It's very tall, even without the 2 inch foam rubber on it, much taller than it should be for our sofa and loveseat. I knew I'd be cutting down the legs so that it would more resemble this look:
Now the table is the perfect height and it doesn't look bad at all. I actually prefer the legs to be "fatter" at the end as opposed to tapering down, yeah...I think I'm diggin' that chunky look.
Gizmo is photo-bombing.
On one of the next posts, I'll have to take a picture for y'all that is table-level so you can see the height of the table vs. the height of the sofa.
So now onto staining the legs with the cherry gel stain...maybe.
I found this photo today and I'm kinda diggin' the skirt.
I'm so glad my mom taught me how to sew when I was young and uninterested in sewing at the time.
I shared this post with all the great blogs hosting link parties found here.
