Reader's DIY

Robin Stanfield sent me the most amazing DIY. I just had to share.

Start with a console table...

Add a little faux orange snakeskin...

Attach with spray adhesive.

It's getting exciting isn't it?

And Ta Da!!!
Can you stand it?

Hurry, what can we cover with fabric??!!
This is what I need for a desk in my room.

Aren't you impressed?

  1. very impressed..i would add nailhead too!! thanks for sharing..have a lovely visit my blog when you have a moment..xx meenal

  2. makes me wish I'd kept the parsons table I once had. looks great...donna

  3. Okay, you know I have an almost identical parson's table behind my sofa just waiting for its makeover. I got grasscloth to re-do mine but maybe I should go with a faux snakeskin (or ostrich, which was another option). I need to get crackin on mine! Thanks for the great inspiration!

  4. I love this! Now I must run to Craigslist to see if I can find a table.

  5. I love this look!!! Fabulous.....need to find cheap parsons!

  6. I'm totally doing this in my future office! Can't wait!

  7. AMAZING!!!!!! thx for sharing :)

  8. Where do you get faux orange snakeskin?????

  9. I am actually doing this project as we speak with real it is fun see how she was adhering the materials together...good to know that spray adhesive does the trick. It turned out great.

  10. I am also wondering where to get the orange snakeskin. Love it.

  11. Oh my gosh! I love it! I simply must find faux orange snakeskin!!


  12. Very clever and looks great. I saw one recently covered in antique velvet with a marvelous trim along the edge.

  14. Well done! It looks so nicely finished. Was it easier than it looks? ;)

  15. Thanks guys! I have to admit that I got the fabric at our discount store here and couldn't figure out what to use it for. I knew it was going in my 7 year olds room, just didn't know the application. It really was a simple project...fabric cutter, metal ruler and spray adhesive. Would really just recommend a good game plan before starting. Walker is thrilled with his new table and I am think of putting glass on top for use as a desk in later years. Thanks for all the comments and compliments!
    FYI I have several yards of this fabric left for anyone interested. Just email me at the above posted email. Thanks!

  16. No! I can't stand it! You had me at "faux orange snakeskin". This is fabulousity at its best.
