Earlier this year I teased you with a non-New Year's resolution but a January resolution. Well, it might be March but I am done.
I also did a post on block printing fabric that was part of this project. It involved furniture legs that I have had sitting around for 15 years! I sprayed them glossy black.
It started like this, with leftover plywood and $16 worth of foam.
I also had the cotton batting and four furniture legs.
The project involved simply upholstering the plywood and foam with my hand block printed fabric. Old hat, right?
The foam was really thick and the batting and fabric was really bunched up on the underside of the corners. This made it impossible to attach the legs. I almost gave up and threw the whole thing away. Instead I left it on my dining room table for a month and did this...
I cut away the bulk and left enough bare wood for the leg brackets to screw into.
I am I in love with it? Not really. I wish that the fabric was more muted, kind of like this Instagram photo.
It does serve as the (almost) no- money- spent -side -table for the other end of my family room sofa.
Its a little leggy but its done and so it stays for now even though there are about 50 tables I would rather have there.
