Skirted Tables

1

By Nicole

I love the crisp tailored look of these trimmed out skirted tables! I think it adds a fresh dimension to a traditional idea. Skirted tables are a great way to hide something ugly,give yourself more storage and create something beautiful!

So when I scavenged through my Mother in Laws basement and found the perfect size sofa table, I was so excited to make a chic table skirt for it!

My inspiration: This foyer by Tom Scheerer

This linen console from Beach Dwelling… I love the laces, so beachy and whimsical!

Blogger Eddie Ross took this old pedestal sink from grungy to gorgeous with his black and white skirt!

He inspired Jenny of Little Green Notebook to do the same! Hers is a no-sew DIY!

Here is a photo of the my skirted table! The fabric, an awesome KWID for Lee Jofa was on the pricy side, so I had my friend pillow maker Melanie of Plum Cushion whip this up for me!

We used a jacquard  to give it that crisp tailored look that I loved in the photos above.

Here is a close up of the fabric and the jacquard!

You can learn how to do it yourself with this tutorial from Better Homes and Gardens!

You can add your own personal style  to just about anything; I would like to share with you two simple ideas you can use to recreate your own pillows by which you can express your own personal style. You can spruce up one of your own old pillows or you can purchase one. I purchased these inexpensive pillows at Kmart.

I used:

Directions:

Organza rosettes pillow:

 

Greek key jacquard pillow:

  • Sew the trim onto the pillow. It is not necessary to stitch all around the trim fold the trim at each end of your pillow into a triangular shape and sew it together this will give your  pillow a clean cut look.
