Any one for coffee?

 Yes that's right - the coffee table is finished and it's time to sit back and relax - and at least in North Wales it's a lovely mild afternoon with a pale blue sky - just right to sit back and enjoy.
To create the top I had a piece of hardboard cut to the inset size of the table. I marked a grid onto the hardboard and drilled holes for the thread for the buttons.
I covered the hardboard with 1" foam and then covered that with grey wool fabric, smoothing it out across the foam.
Using the Big Shot and Bigz die I cut 18 circles to use to cover buttons for the top.

It made covering the buttons even easier - especially as I used a 'self cover button tool'
Insert the fabric and the button top into the soft rubber holder, place the back over the button and press in with the rigid plastic tool - so easy -

I then stitched the buttons through the foam and the hardboard - tying the threads at the back to give some tension.
The edges of the grey fabric were laced together to hold in place.
It's then really simple to place the top into the top of the table - and now it's an attractive unique piece of furniture.

Now to plan some projects for Christmas!!!
Until next week have fun.
