You guys amaze me! Yesterday I showed you this pin as a hint to what I’m planning on doing in my coffee table makeover:
Several of you mentioned using fabric to cover the top of my coffee table. Well, they don’t say “great minds think alike” for nothing! Look what I bought:
How crazy is that?! I bought a yard of navy and leopard fabric because I wasn’t sure the route I wanted to take. (And let’s be honest, I’m still not 100% sure!) Either way, my idea is to mod-podge it to the top of my sad sad coffee table top.
I’m leaning towards leopard over navy. I would love to go out of my comfort zone a bit and be bold!! But then again, now that I’ve got them both home, I’m wondering if magenta is calling my name. Oh, decisions, decisions!
I laid the fabric out and pulled it tight over the table, and no sign of a water mark is present!!
Remember how indecisive I am? I would love your opinions!– I want this room to be eclectic and fun, but do you think the leopard will be too busy with the cowhide rug underneath? I’m thinking it will look tacky? The picture I pinned has a lot more pink, so perhaps magenta is the way to go?! Be honest! How the heck do designers pull it off and make it look so easy?!
Tracing it perfectly to shape and then attaching it to my table will be tricky.
Stay tuned friends. I’ll be sure to document the whole process! And don’t forget to comment with your opinions/ideas!
