Coffee Table to Bench...another GoodWill makeover

Ok. So I was wanting to hold on to this project until it's completion. But, I can't.
I'm SO excited about how this project is turning out!!!

The story goes like this:  On a trip to Goodwill...sadly, or goodly (?), one of my favorite stores...I found this coffee table.

Now, if you've read my blog before, you know that I am a sucker for details, well minus the dust...but you see the potential, right? Good, I'm glad YOU husband's eyes rolled when he saw this thing.

The thing about this was $7.00!!! Cigarette burns and all baby. HaHa...kinda gross actually! (insert smoked filled basement scene of  That 70's show.) 

 And, although I NEEDED a coffee table, I didn't SEE it as a coffee table.
My vision: Painted cream and aged with glaze, topped with a cushion in a beautiful fabric. 
 I see it as a bench, extra seating if you will. 

Here it is painted:  

Here it is painted and glazed, and the fabric draped across the top:

It will be on it's way to the upholstery shop soon. I really don't want to ruin the fabric. (The fabric was EXPENSIVE.)

I can't wait to get it back!!

I just LOVE how it turned out!!
