I am so excited about this project that I have to post a few pictures now.  I will post a full tutorial later because I took several pictures along the way, but for now here are just some Before and lots of After shots!

My mother-in law was getting rid of this coffee table.  It is solid wood and originally from Ethan Allen so I knew it was a quality piece of furniture.  It just needed a little makeover for our house!

I have been wanting to make an upholstered ottoman from a coffee table for a long time.  I have been inspired by others and have several of these inspirations pinned on my pinterest page.

Next project in this guest bedroom: Paint the walls!
I am thinking a soothing sage green...but will take suggestions from anyone! :-)
