DIY: I Just Love a Cute (Table) Skirt


I have a bit of a crush on burlap.  I just think it's beautiful.  I know, beautiful may not be what you think of when you see a length of burlap fabric but I love the natural color and the rustic texture.  To me, it is beautiful.

 So when I was looking for a way to dress up this simple table in my upstairs hallway, naturally burlap came to mind.
BEFORE

So I looked to some of my favorite blogs for inspiration and when I came across this beautiful picture on Dixie Delights I knew what I wanted to do.


I ran out to Joann's Fabric store and bought several yards of burlap, thankfully burlap is so cheap I was able to get more then I needed.  I dug out my honey's staple gun and got to work.  I began by folding over the edge and stapling it around the entire table, just under the top, over lapping every so often to create pleats.  In not time at all the table was complete.


Because I am super lazy, I didn't even hem the bottom.  I just pinned up the hem, until the burlap stiffened up a bit, as it naturally does, and removed the pins a few days later.  I also added a folded piece of fabric along the top to cover the staples and my project was complete! All that was left was to add some of my favorite decorating pieces.


AFTER



I always add some family pictures in any decorating projects.  I love my family and nothing makes me happier then seeing there sweet faces everywhere.



This little project had 3 of my favorite qualities, easy, fast and cheap.  It  still remains one of my most favorite projects I have done.  

Let me know what you are crushing on this week.  Leave me a comment and let me know you stopped by.  Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. I like the way the burlap looks on your table. It looks soft - I could do this with my side table that I use in the dining room to hide utility items on the lower shelf. Great Idea and thanks!
