Here is a super easy project I just did recently! It's an accent table in my library (what we call our living room).
I used a particleboard table, you know the ones...find them most anywhere. But this would work on lots of smaller tables!
And I'm not one to waste good storage space -- this vintage apple basket holds current catalogs!
The fabric I used is actually a drapery panel that I got on SALE at LinensNThings closeout time! Just drape it around the table, and fold over the excess neatly on the top (I didn't want to cut it, cause I might use it in a different way in the future!). I love this, cause it's already hemmed and lined for extra ooomph! This is silk fabric, so I let it puddle slightly at the bottom too!
See the little folds? No problem. Cover them up with your accessories! :) I got the lamp at HomeGoods, and the plant is a FAKE one (that needs serious dusting, I know -- I just pulled it out of storage!) that I just don't care is fake, and the picture is of my girls and my nephew in a Target frame!
I got an even better deal on the lamp because the finial is missing -- betcha never noticed till I pointed it out!
2 lessons there: It never hurts to ask a store manager for an extra discount on "damaged" merchandise,
and stop pointing out all of the faults in your home. Others rarely notice "problems" until you show them! Enjoy what you have and stop apologizing for what you don't!! :)
Ta-daaaa!! And there you have a fabulous looking accent table, at a great price, and with no sewing involved! This is just the kind of project I like! :)
I'm still working on clearing the clutter, my sunroom (which I plan to reveal next week), mistreating lots of windows, and.....
coming up with an amazing giveaway for my soon-to-be 100th post!!!
Have a great day today!!
