Sweet and Sophisticated

Remember this little thing? She was pretty scratched up, but sturdy. And I had a vision for her the moment I saw her!

Do you like it?

I'm really pleased with how it's turned out.

A new color for the hardware.

Nice glossy black, and a touch of surprise pink inside the drawer.

And I had the ultra cool fabric I've been dying to use, and I thought it was perfect for the top of this table! I think it's the perfect balance of sweet and sophisticated.

  1. Oh Heidi! I LOVE IT! I love the Damask fabric and what you did with the drawer color on the inside. Huge improvement. Is this for a client, are you selling it or keeping it?

  2. Thanks :) I'll be selling this one. It still needs a final clear coat, but I wanted to get pictures while my brother was here to take them.

  3. wow, I really love it! how did you do with the fabric?

  4. I love this table. Did you mod podge the fabric?

  5. Would love to hear how you actually adhered the fabric and cut it so perfectly!! Well done...thanks for stopping by Pandora's Box!

  6. I did use mod podge for this....lots and lots of it...a little more then half a make it nice and thick, then sanded down the brush strokes with very fine sandpaper. As for the cutting, I got it cut down sorta to size (but big...) then slowly trimmed it down with a heavy book sitting to keep it from sliding around. I read a bunch of tutorials on doing it and some said to make sure you cut the fabric a bit small in case it stretches when wet, so I just tried to make a nice curve that went parallel to the top.

  7. Wow! This turned out really great! I love the fabric you chose. You did a wonderful job!

  8. I loooooove this... SUPER cute!! I never thought of putting fabric on the top of a table, and that fabric is SO adorable! Awesome job.

  9. purple and black is so classy. the fabric print gorgeous.

  10. Love the table. Very pretty. Thanks for sharing.

  11. The "after" is amazing! I love how the touch of color and pattern on this accent table acts as an accessory for the space. Have a very ugly bookcase that could use help like this! Thanks for sharing!
    Partying with you at the CSI Modge Podge challenge!

  12. Such a pretty pretty pattern on top! Definitely much better as an "After." :) Visiting from The CSI Project. Hope you'll come by and say hi. :)
