Upholstered Footstool


You will need:

-Nornas coffee table, Ikea


-Cot mattress



-Tape measure

-Staple gun


  1. Before assembling your table, measure halfway down each of the legs and saw them in half.
  2. Paint the legs and the underside of the coffee table with black paint. Once the paint is dry follow the instructions to put the table together.
  3. Cut your mattress to fit the top of your coffee table. Piece the off cuts together to make an oblong shape.
  4. Place the trimmed mattress and off cuts on top of the table and cover with wadding. Staple the wadding to the underside of the table to hold everything together.
  5. Lay the printed fabric on top of the wadding and staple underneath. To finish, fold and sew at the corners for a neat professional edge.
