DIY: Skirted Table with Greek Key Trim {BONUS - IT'S NO SEW!}

DIY: Skirted Table with Greek Key Trim {BONUS - IT'S NO SEW!}

Remember the sneak peek of this vintage Greek Key trim from last week?

I spotted this trim at a second hand store and new it would be coming home with me! Oh, and it was $1.95 for all that remained on the bolt. S-C-O-R-E!

I happened to have a pair of rattan bamboo tables stashed away in our garage just waiting for a project. The tables were intended to be used together to create a round table, but this girl loves a demi-lune waaaaay to much . . . I like them best as twins instead!

I had some hot pink shantung in my fabric stash and thought it would look great with the “key lime” Greek Key trim. I’m a BIG FAN of Pink & Green!

Supply List:
Spray Paint (optional)
Hot glue gun & hot glue sticks
Fabric Pins
Tape (I used painters tape)

1. Spray paint the top of your table. If you don’t want to paint the top of your table, place a piece of fabric on top instead and make any necessary trimmings.

2. Using painters tape I attached the fabric to the table and trimmed the fabric to the size of the table with scissors. Next, using fabric pins, I created a template of how I wanted the skirt to look once complete. I wanted the skirt to have a "kick pleat" front and simply folded the fabric to create the pleat. 

3. Remove template from table, Iron fabric and tape back onto table.

4. Using a glue gun, glue top of fabric to top of table. Use glue as your sewing machine to nip & tuck fabric into place however you see fit.

5. Lastly, add trim with hot glue.

When I get sick of these skirted tables, I can simply remove the fabric and return them into something like these:

But for now, these pink & green greek key twins are heading to our ever-changing guest room . . . A little Pink Flambe addition in our home!
