I decided to turn the coffee table into something I would use, so I started looking online for inspiration and came across this tutorial on curbly.com that explained step by step how to turn an old coffee table into an upholstered bench. So I headed to JoAnn Fabrics and Menards, bought the supplies I needed, and followed the directions step by step. Here is the result:
This bench now sits at the foot of our bed and it works perfectly because out littlest pup, Emma, can now get up on our bed to snuggle.
Here is lil Emma.
And here is our other pup, Oliver. He likes to sleep in bed like a real person.
Here are the pictures from the tutorial that I followed.

Also, I would LOVE to see any inspiring furniture or room transformations that you have done, so if you have any that you would like to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eric – I cannot wait to see the craigslist dresser you and Aimee are working on. You will have to email me a picture of the final product and don’t forget to take a “before” picture!
