Skirted Tables

I grew up in a home, in the 90's, sporting some serious fluffy skirted tables.... (Mom, I don't hold it against you, they were popular!) I have just had an aversion to them ever since.  But lately I am swooning over these tailored versions.  So much so, I think I might just have one in the works very soon.

Unexpected Shape + Fabulous Fabric = Gorgeous Entry

Clean, simple, chic.  That is what it's all about.

Love skirted tables. Who knows what lies beneath? Like the trim.

The tie details on this linen skirted console are such a great detail.

I remember tearing this out of my Domino magazine years ago for my inspiration file.

Great DIY Versions...

What I love about these classic skirted tables is that you can transform a ho hum piece of furniture into this chic statement with just a little fabric.  Plus you can hide just about anything underneath!!

  1. I just (yesterday) built a little makeup vanity for my bedroom out of scrap pallet wood. It's pretty rough looking. This is a FABULOUS idea! Thanks for planting that seed!

  2. K,

    I did this at Christmas time for a seasonal change with the console table in my dining room and I couldn't believe how childproof it was. My curious little toddler didn't disturb my inside contents at all.

    The table skirt has certainly evolved from our moms' ruffly days into a sleeker, more modern look.

    Thanks for sharing,

    1. This will be a toddler fix for sure! She might try to use it as a fort though...

  3. What beautiful examples you have shared!! Megan

  4. I am! I made a tailored round one for my bedroom. I've just started following you, not sure how I found you, but I sure do enjoy your posts. Loved the headboard!! You did a great job!

  5. There is a wonderful product made my tablevogue, ( transforms a 6' folding table into something that is truly design worthy. Glue on decorative ribbon and you are ready to go. It is a must for people who entertain.

  6. Thanks Kristin for including my table skirt in your round up. I was reading your post, scrolling along, thinking how beautiful each image was (you have posted a lot of inspirational images that I haven't seen before) and was surprised when I ran across mine.

    They really a terrific way to update a piece of furniture and a great way to add a little extra storage space to a room. Good luck, I know yours will be fabulous!
