Waxed-Canvas Coffee Table
Here's a weekend twofer: You can give an older table new life while creating a spiffy surface for books and board games.
Stretch easy-to-wipe waxed canvas around its top; you don't need special upholstering skills—just a staple gun and a little patience. (The trick to a neat finish is folding 90-degree hotel corners.) Tap in upholstery tacks to secure the fabric, and polish off a sophisticated place to play.
