Fabric…It’s Not Just for Curtains Anymore!
Ever since I saw this amazing fabric covered console table by Timothy Corrigan at the ASO Showhouse, I’ve been smitten with the idea of covering a table of my own.
Not only does a fabric covered table stand out as a unique design element but the texture and visual punch it adds to room is really dramatic.
When you think about all the fabric options out there, this fairly easy diy project is a great way to create a custom look for your home.
Even though I didn’t need any more inspiration, I went looking for some and came across these looks and ideas…
Sometimes a room just needs a bit of natural texture and covering a table in grasscloth can add the touch needed.
You can never go wrong with an animal print and this python print turns simple stacked console tables into a stunning look. I also like that a coat of Mod Podge was added to give the fabric a more durable surface.
A mini chevron pattern is subtle but interesting. With a print like this you can go neutral in color or create a table that adds a pop of color.
Even tables with a design detail can be covered in fabric. This silhouette is perfect for the finishing touch of nail heads.
A bold fabric choice on a stylized console table would look great in a foyer.
Even the big box stores (HomeGoods) is getting in on the look with this navy fabric covered table and silver nail heads.
If you’re a diy’er and want to give this project a try, here’s a great tutorial on the process. And if you can’t score a super cheap parson table at your local thrift store, here’s a couple of budget friendly tables to check out.
