Skirting Around The Issue


via Decor Design Review

Skirted tables have always caught my eye.  There is something so traditional and elegant about them. These tailored beauties are also a great solution if you need to conceal items that might not be so visually appealing;)

I have a space in my bedroom where I would like to have a dressing table/vanity. After our Master Bathroom remodel, (which I still love and hope to post soon;) I lost a sitting area to apply makeup and dry my hair etc. Currently, I use my bathroom counter.  But if I am honest, I really miss a place to sit down while getting ready.

The long empty wall in my bedroom seemed like the perfect space for this.  My bedroom isn’t large, so the dressing table needed to be narrow and streamlined, similar to the above picture.  You can find pictures of my bedroom here.

You all know I like to shop the house and use what I have;), so this project was no different. In my search, around midnight,  I found a narrow glass top table that was recently used in my living room (which I have since replaced with a rolling cart/bar). #priorities;)


 It was the correct dimension for my space, but I still needed something to conceal all things that are used in getting one presentable for the world (minus a plastic surgeon;)!

Moreover, I didn’t want any more furniture (other than the skirted table) or visual clutter in the space.  Yet, I needed something for storage. Bingo!  I remembered what a perfect solution a skirted table would be! Streamlined, visually appealing and it could hide all of my “stuff”!

See how my mind works?  Scary I know…:)

I have never attempted a skirted table, and knew it had to be a no sew DIY, because this little lady doesn’t sew;) While researching a no sew technique, I found a quick and what appears to be easy tutorial  compliments of Julia Ryan from (Pawleys Island Posh blog).  The tutorial can be found here.

I am envisioning something along the lines of this beautiful image I found on Pinterest. My table has a removable glass top like the one above for easy clean up. The soothing neutrals are also similar to the colors in my Master Bedroom.  I will most likely use a linen-look for my fabric selection, along with a fabulous trim for the finishing touch!

Wish me luck friends!
