Desk Table Skirt Tutorial
Dark espresso furniture mixed with a creamy canvas fabric makes me very happy. We just purchased this desk it was time, I couldn't take looking at the one last piece of oak furniture anymore. We got home assembled our desk and was left with this...
That's not going to work. So I pondered for awhile on how to cover all these wires and not spend to much time and money on it. Here's how I made it.....
You will need:
Craft staple gun
Cutting Mat/Rotary cuter
I measured all three sides of my desk adding a inch to the measurement, be sure to measure from the desk to the floor as well. Then off to Joannes with my 50% off coupon. I decided to go with a creme colored canvas fabric. I thought canvas would work better then a light cotton or linen fabric because it doesn't wrinkle as easily. I bought 2 yards.
I cut my fabric to my measurements, then pressed the sides in a 1/4 inch I didn't sew it but you definitely can. I didn't have to hem the bottom it was already sealed from the bolt, does that make sense?
Crawl underneath your desk and start stapling, at the top of the fabric I bunched up a little when stapling so it wouldn't hang straight down but flare a little. Staple all the way around and your done. Stand back and admire you handy work.
