Here's the before of the table...
and here's the fabric up close...
It's so easy to cover a table and when you want to remove the vinyl, there is no damage to the furniture. Come on in and see how easy...
This is the after and it only took about 10 minutes to do and all you need are scissors and a staple gun.
There was nothing wrong with this table, just needed a change and only cost $6.00 for 2 yards and a few minutes of time. This also works great for second hand furniture that needs a little TLC and you don't want to refinish it...just cover it up!!
Cut enough drop down fabric to cover the thickness of the table and then enough to be folded underneath and stapled. My drop was about 4 inches.
Another tip is for vinyl that has a repeat pattern. When cutting and stapling the fabric, guide yourself so that one part of the repeated pattern is always along the edge of the table. I used this repeat white pattern on the edge (shown with the red arrow).
You can use any type of staple gun...manual or electric. I'm sure duct tape would work too, just depends on your furniture if it will stick.
Here is the underneath of the lip of the table where I stapled it.
I love how it adds a pop of design to the room.
I also wanted to share this button storage box I found in a thrift store for $1.00!! Isn't it the cutest?
It's going to be great for holding all my sewing tools, thread and whatnots when I'm hand sewing!!
Here are other projects I cover with vinyl in the past...
