Skirted Console Tables

I've told you about my home's foyer (or lack thereof) here and here.  I already own an entry table, so I knew that if I wanted to do something differently, it has to be budget friendly.  After seeing the skirted bedside tables that have been popping up on design blogs for a while now, I wondered if a skirted console table had been done?  A little Google-ing later, I realized I did NOT have an original idea!  But, the pictures I found were just the inspiration I needed.  Here are a few of the images that are inspiring me~

Now, the bigger decisions- what size to make the console table and what fabric!

Are you liking skirted tables or do you prefer the richness of a wood table?


  1. I like the skirted! I want one too!!

  2. Hello! I found your blog via "A Well Dressed Home" and subscribed via email. I am new to blogging as well and very much enjoy reading yours, as I'm also a 30 something professional. I love the skirted idea. I've been looking into skirted bedside tables. I have actually added a skirt to our ugly laundry room sink so not it looks so much better!! I made it myself and was super easy!

  3. I think they add softness to a room!

  4. I am very much liking the skirted ones. Can't wait to see how yours turns out!
