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?

  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!

  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!
