Wood Coffee Table to Tufted Ottoman

Abbie from Five Days Five Ways was ready for a change from the serviceable wood coffee table she had in her living room. She had her heart set on a large tufted ottoman but knew it would come with an equally large price tag. While Abbie says she doesn’t do pricey, she does do DIY and quickly set out on turning a square coffee table from Craigslist into the ottoman of her dreams. I love how Abbie repurposed a table and think her lovely ottoman is the icing on the cake in her gorgeously decorated living room.

Debra from Bungalow loved the look of a reclaimed wood and metal coffee table for her living room, but spending a couple thousand dollars on a small table simply wasn’t happening. Instead, Debra purchased some iron from the hardware store and put her husband’s welding skills to work. Even if your husband can’t weld, Debra suggests finding a friend or hiring out the welding to still save a pretty penny from Restoration Hardware’s price tag.

Zinc Coffee Table

One thing Kelli from Restore Interiors felt was missing from her living area was a coffee table. She got a secondhand table from a friend that happened to resemble one from Pottery Barn with a zinc top. Kelli liked the idea of a zinc top but wanted it to have more of a vintage look than all shiny and new. Kelli experimented with “recipes” and really achieved the look of zinc in the end.
