FRIDAY!!!! Welcome to the start of the weekend friends. Our new chairs (friends + family sale has them at 30% off) got delivered yesterday and now all I can think about it is what table to pair with them. I'm supposed to leave the bedroom updates for Wednesday ORC posts but I think I found a little loophole if I just talk about random tables today. Right? I mean I may or may not be thinking about putting a table in between the two chairs. Get a sneak peak before Wednesday and see what I'm talking about here.
Skirted Tables. I know we've talked this before and I've made two for an old bookcase we own. But it's been years and I'm curious your current thoughts. This time I want to discuss round table skirts only.
I, for one, still love them for two big reasons.
1. They offer immediate hidden storage with clean lines
2. You can transform an old or ugly piece of furniture into some thing beautiful and it doesn't involve spray paint.
Bonus: You can create them with staple guns, Velcro, and hem tape which let's any skill level play along.
I think they're such nice way to add a softness to a room with a lot of angled furniture. Think of how many square and rectangles are in your rooms. I think the big key factor for keeping it fresh is pleats in lieu of the big gathered or full skirted balloon look.
It's also a fun way to use a bold pattern or pricier fabric in a major way without the yardage needed for window treatments.
Curious on your thoughts. Love it? Leave it? Don't hate it but can't really see how it would work in your own house.
