Stylish And Decorative Table Skirting
Table skirting is considered to be one of the most effective way to dress up your table. Table skirting resemble tablecloths in the sense that this skirting do not cover the top of the table but wrap around its edge. Decoratively speaking, table skirting is like a tablecloth in that it usually covers the top of the table in addition to all sides. Though a skirt can be attached just to the perimeter of a table, leaving the top exposed, most decorative fabric ones cover the entire table. Whether it covers the entire table or just the perimeter, it can be both a decorative and practical accent to furniture. A side table with shelving underneath it that doubles as storage is a practical piece of furniture. If a person prefers to hide the items being stored under the table, using a skirt is a decorative way to do that. It may only be practical if the stored items are only periodically used, but the fabric does help create discreet storage space. The same is true with pedestal sinks and sink skirts.
Table skirting is also a good way to utilize furniture that may no longer match other pieces or that has worn finishes but remains sturdy. By simply covering a table with a skirt that coordinates with drapery or other upholstery in the room, it can be given new life and use. A skirt can be made from any fabric or even by attaching strings of beads or garland to an elastic band. Table skirts can also be purchased from home fashion retailers and party supply stores.
