I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time. I have an idea of how I wanted to make it, but I needed a coffee table that was the right height and length to fit in my room. I finally found one at a thrift store for $20. Score!!

This is exactly wanted I needed. It fits perfectly at the end of my bed.
The first step was to clean and sand it. Super quick and easy to do
As you can see on the table, I have primer and two different colors of metallic paint.
I always like to prime my furniture before I paint it. It helps hold the paint. If you skip this step, it will scratch very easily.
After the primer dries add on 1-2 coats of bronze metallic paint full coverage.
Then I used a chip brush and dry-brushed a wheat metallic paint over the top so the base color shows through.
You’re going to love this little hack. I used an electric turkey knife to cut through the foam that I use for the top. I bought this foam at the thrift store and measured it to fit the top.
Then I sprayed glue on the wood before I laid the foam on it so it wouldn’t slide around.
Next, I laid the fur on the table and then laid the chair with the foam on top. Once I had it in place, I used an electric staple gun and attached it to the under lip of the table. When I got to the corners, I just cut off the excess and stapled the corners in place. I highly suggest you use an electric staple gun. If you use a manual one your hands will be very sore.
Then I went a step further and added these decorative brackets on each leg.
Now I have a fur bench that I plan on putting at the end of my bed.
I added a complete supplies list for you below.
I hope you enjoyed this fur bench makeover and found some inspiration.
