Making Tuesday: Feet Cushions for the Coffee Table

The hunt for a coffee table kept us on the trail for the last couple of years. With high requirements for practicality and a small budget, the search ended just 2 weekends ago. The tiled surface allowed for casual placements of food and drinks, there was even a shelf that housed remote controls, a tissue box, pens and pads. Its measurements were near perfect, longer in length and lower in height than the old table, it quickly served as an ottoman. But a much softer resting ground for tired feet was needed, which led to a speedy sewing project that very same weekend. In just 2 hours the green on green cushions were completed, created in the same Batik fabric used in the couch cushions they are a welcome addition to the living room.

  1. I love this idea of feet cushions. Great table. We have been searching for a coffee table, it needs to be higher due to a certain canine curious nose. Anything edible is in peril.
