I built the plans exactly as given (minus the top of course) but in hindsight I would have reduced the height by three inches to accommodate for the three inch height of the upholstery foam. I am still very happy with it!
Built from Plan(s)
For the base, I painted them with Rustoleum's Hammered in copper. (The quart, NOT the spray paint) I did two coats. When applying, go quickly and don't over brush the paint. I did spray on a light clear matte finish to tone down the shiny finish of the paint.
