Take a coffee table from ordinary to fabulous with a simple faux fur update. Though the table is fine on it's own, adding beautiful faux fur fabric will give you a high-end look and be a sure conversation starter every time someone enters your room.
Measure and Pick Fabric
Measure your table and pick out a beautiful fabric.
Remove Table Base and Prep
Spread out a blanket on the floor to protect the tabletop and flip the table over. Unscrew the tabletop and remove the base.
Lay Out Fur, Foam and Batting
Lay out the faux fur with the fur face down and place the foam on top. Put the batting on top of the foam to act as a layer between the foam and the tabletop. This will protect the top of the table in case you ever want to remove the fur and use the table in its original state.
Trim the fur to fit your table.
Glue Batting and Fabric Down
Use your glue gun to glue the batting to the underside edge of the tabletop.
Place the Nails and Finish Gluing
Stick a nail through the batting and into the holes to mark where the screws will go.
Next, remove the nail from the batting and push it through the faux fur. Pull the fabric tight and glue it on top of the batting. Push the nails into holes and leave them in until it's time to connect the base.
Fold in the corners like you're wrapping a present and glue them down. Repeat these steps around the entire tabletop.
Punch Holes for Screws
Once the fabric is secure and the glue is dry, remove the nails and make a larger hole in the fabric using an X-acto knife. Poke the screw through the fabric and batting to make sure it fits.
Re-attach Table Base and Enjoy Your Table
Re-attach the table base to the top using an allen wrench. Flip the table over and accessorize.
