I have been really unfocused lately. I start something and then get
distracted by something else. I am blaming it on a prolonged spring
fever. But I wanted to show you that I finally chose some fabric to
make a skirt for my studio workspace.
If you look closely you will see that it is the same fabric I used for the
foot stool. I like the fabric so much and I had plenty left to make the
skirt so I thought I would go ahead with it.
When I say it is not complete it really isn't. I just have it pinned on right now.
You see this is a big trestle table. It used to belong to my husband. I love the
size of it, but the wood has a medium stain and there are flying ducks
decoupaged on the top. I know ~ way too masculine hunting lodge for me.
David used it for an office desk. The good thing is that he had a glass top
made to protect the surface. So I took an old linen table cloth and stretched
it out over the top. Then we put the glass back on. I still had the ugly wires
and stuff exposed from beneath. Now the new cloth is pinned to the old
linen table cloth. I will stitch the new one in place and cover the edges
with some grosgrain ribbon to give it a more finished look.
I kept a slit in the middle so I can still get to all of the wires and the cable
box and all of that necessary but unsightly stuff.
So that's all for today. Never fear though. My project list is a long
one and I will keep showing you bits and pieces as I go along.
Have a fun day!
Big Texas Hugs,
