Okay, guys, I really had trouble writing the words ‘table skirt’ for today’s title. Doesn’t ‘table skirt’ just conjure up images of overly-floral bed-and-breakfast rooms, lace doilies and granny’s house? This is not what I’m after. Instead, my goal is to make a fun table skirt that brings in more pattern and texture to my four-year-old’s rather plain room.
Here’s the Ikea table I’d like to transform with fabric and ribbons:
And here’s my initial inspiration for the table skirt/ribbon idea:
I started by checking out a local fabric store. I played around with ribbons on a bold pattern:
and on a solid color:
Now here’s the hard part: choosing the actual fabric. The room’s walls are light purple and Tessa’s duvet is white with green polka dots. I don’t want the fabric to be too matchy-matchy, but not too attention-getting either. Here are my current favorites:
Kamal in Moss
Wildflowers in Multi
Daisies in Spring
Sweet Organic Stripe in Blue
Floral in Cool:
Damask in Yellow:
Basic solid in Sunshine:
There’s a lot of choices, so for this poll you can vote for your top three. Once the list is narrowed down, I’ll let Tessa choose her favorite. Here’s her room again so you can use it for context.
What have you been waffling about these days? I’d love to hear about it!
