Tell us the tools and resources you used for the project:
Plywood, 1×6 boards, batting, fabric hammer, wood screws, drill, L-brackets, staple gun, scissors, tape measure, handy hubby (optional).
Share step by step instructions for how you completed the project:
1. Measure the coffee table. Build a wooden cover for the table using plywood,1×6 boards, wood screws and L-backets for support. (If you have a wooden coffee table you could omit this step.)
2. Cover the entire (including the sides) box with a few layers of batting. Staple to the underside of the wooden cover.
3. Cover the entire box with fabric of your choice. Staple to the underside of the box, and be sure to carefully tuck the corners.
