A fresh coat of paint and a fun upholstered topper are the secrets to this piece's revival. First, sand, clean, and prime the table. Then, cut 1/2-inch-thick plywood to measure 1/2 inch smaller on all sides than the tabletop. Next, cut four layers of batting to match plywood top. Cut a fifth layer of batting and one of fabric, both 3 inches wider on all sides than the plywood. Stack four batting layers on the fifth; center plywood on top. Pull batting around the plywood; staple on back. Repeat with fabric layer. Place cushion on table; screw through underside of table to attach pouf. As an added bonus, give the tired hardware a fresh outlook with glossy paint.
