I did the smell test and No more smell. Anyway I wanted a bench for the entry way. So I ran to Joannes. They are currently having a 50% off all red tag fabric!! So I bought some outdoor fabric I liked for $3.50 a yard ( I have three small children so outdoor fabric is usually what I choose, they already licked some jelly beans and placed them on the bench. The little dye marks came right off with some water and a rag!!) I only used one yard. I bought some foam (EXPENSIVE) it cost me $18.00 with the 40% off coupon. It was 3 inches thick. I put it on top of the coffee table wood and then cut with scissors (my hand hurt after the fact) I didn't want to use the sewing machine on this so I didn't :) I used my staple gun. It worked (but my hand hurt even more).
It would look better with some sewing machine help but I don't want to :) So here it is in the front entryway. A really simple project (It would have been more simple without the animal smells).
$10.oo for the coffee table
$18.00 for the foam
$3.50 for the fabric
I had all the other things on hand so for me its was $31.50 not great but not bad! I want to try reusing foam for any future projects from chairs or something.
The great news is that the husband REALLY LIKES IT! YAY.
Here is a tip if you want to do this. Find a coffee table where the legs or frame can be removed from the table top, it makes covering a breeze (thing recovering a dining room chair)
