    Your new bench is terrific. It really is a very clever idea and looks great in your game room.

    The bench looks great. Five dollars is a steal.

    Great job. I have been thinking of using something like this for under my backpack hooks to make a "mud room" type area. When I have ran accross the glass top tables I have never thought of just adding the support. Again very cute!!

    Well, someone already looks comfortable on that bench, Julie! : ) Great idea; I love the idea of coffee tables made over into benches.

    Very creative! I can't believe you just painted the cover! I would never have thought of that. You should link up at DIY Thrifty Thursday @ http://www.thrifty101.blogspot.com

    Love it. That yellow color is gorgeous, and at first glance I thought you had used an old grain sack to recover the cushion. Don't you just love what paint can do??

    What a great use of a coffee table! I don't think I would have thought to turn a table into a window seat.

    I love window seats! You give me hope lol.

    Have a great evening!
