inspiration: skirted table

Lately, I've been completely obsessed with the clean, crisp look of skirted tables.  And, I have to admit, the extra storage underneath is an added bonus for me.  So, after painting the console table in my entry way four times and still not being satisfied with it, I decided to bite the bullet and make a table skirt, instead.  When I walked into Vieuxtemps in Charleston and saw this table, I was sold: 

I found this Jefferson linen fabric for 50% off at Hancock Fabrics and snatched up the rest of the bolt before the poor sales lady could say, "Can I help you?"  And now here is my skirt, in my foyer, in all her gauzy glory, waiting for some friends, in the form of lamps, pictures and gray/blue grasscloth wallpaper:

Here are a few other photos that helped feed my inspiration.  This one by Erika Powell of Urban Grace Interiors is, by far, my favorite:

And last, but not least...Jenny, from one of my favorite blogs, Little Green Notebook, created a simple, elegant skirt for a small table in her entryway.
