Padded coffee table...

Hi Everyone!  I know I've been absent most of this week.  I've been working on some custom pieces and trying to work on building up my inventory.  I had a sweet friend and her husband stop by this week to pick up a piece they purchased back during my open house but wouldn't fit in the vehicle.  They also picked up a few more items and now I really have empty space in the studio that needs to be filled.  One of the items my friends picked up was a custom piece.
 I've made several of these in the past.  I call them a padded coffee table with storage, but I've also sold them as toy boxes with a padded all depends on what you need it for.
 They are using it as a very stylish toy box.
 I love this fabric.  It has just the right amout of blue and teal in it.  I debated on whether to paint the base cream or espresso brown....I'm glad I went with the brown.
 I added safety arms to it so that the lid won't slam down on little fingers.
I was happy with the way it turned out.  And my friends liked it too!  So now I really need to get busy building in the it's a good thing the weekend is almost here.  Do you have big plans for the weekend?  I will be building and going to an auction on Saturday...hopefully I'm able to pick up a few great items.

And today is my dear, sweet mother's birthday!  Happy Birthday Mom!  I hope you have a fabulous day!  You deserve it!

And as always, thanks for stopping by.

  1. Happy birthday to your mom!
    My week-end will be shorter than usual: I'll have to spend my Saturday morning working at the office because I have to replace a colleague :-(

    I wish I could find the time for my drop leaf table. It's sitting in the middle of my guest/craft room.

    Have a nice week-end

  2. I think the brown works too, it sets off the pretty fabric really well.
    I'm working as usual this weekend. On my days off we had a couple of wet and windy days over here, and now I'm back to work it's really hot again - typical !
    Have a great weekend x

  3. Wish your mom a belated happy birthday from me!

    This padded coffee table is great. Living in a small house, I can appreciate the storage it offers. Beautiful job, as usual.
