To Top It Off


The guest room needed two bedside tables. I like having mismatched tables, especially if they have character. I had the pedestal part of a table stored in my garage. I can't even remember what happened to the original top. I just know that, much to my husband's dismay, I had kept the bottom as a project-in-waiting. All it needed was a pre-cut round top and a little paint.After giving it a couple of coats of paint, I wasn't happy with the overall look. It just called out for a little something extra.
I ran to the fabric store and found some trim and some heavy weight fabric that has a great texture---like a combination of burlap and linen.I turned the table upside-down on the fabric and traced
and cut about an inch wider than the tabletop.I sprayed a generous amount of adhesive
to the tabletop and applied the fabric,
pulling and gluing the extra fabric along the edge.
I used hot glue to adhere the trim
along the center of the edge.

I love the look of this table!

It adds such texture and beauty to the room.
