make me pretty – a proper little table gets a new twist

May 27, 2010

I know you will recognize this table. I think you can find it in a third of American homes – it’s from the Bombay Company. Anyway, I picked it up at at a yard sale – a challenge to myself. How am I going to take this stuffy little table and make it cool?

So I did what I usually do – went searching for the perfect fabric. It wasn’t exactly easy – I needed something funky but not too crazy. This table is so conservative how would I find fabric that would jazz it up without looking completely ridiculous? Then I saw it – the brown in it would match the stain of the table helping to pull it all together. I painted the edge of the table top a light blue that’s in the fabric to make it interesting.
