This faux fur side table is the one girly piece of furniture in my house! Every time I pass it it makes me smile because it is unexpected in a house filled with oversized couches and dark wood furniture.
Faux fur is a fun fabric to work with year-round. It adds a touch of whimsy to a space. Unless you have…
a Bernese Mountain dog. I know I know… those big brown eyes. How could anyone blame her for anything, right?
Chloe is a curvy, four-legged girl who sheds when the wind blows and brings mulch in with her sweeping tail. I was reluctant to bring in a fur accessory for fear the furry fabric would be a magnet for dog hair and dust.
But, when I found this side table at Homegoods for next to nothing and a (Flokati (furry) rug for $16.00 at Marshall’s, I knew this was my chance to make a side table for my office.
RUG OR FABRIC
Amazon has an inexpensive rug that would be perfect for faux fur crafts.
HOW TO TAKE A CLEARANCE TABLE TO THE NEXT LEVEL
- Remove the table’s wood top with a drill or screwdriver.
2. Make a template of the circumference of the table’s top.
I added 3″ to the template to pull the rug over the table’s edge and staple on the underside of the table.
3. A staple gun was all I needed to attach the rug to the tabletop. I stapled opposite ends of the table and then stapled the remaining edges. It was like wrapping a round shaped gift box.
My goal was to have a large enough remnant to create something else that was faux fabulous.
It took minutes to complete this side table. The only issue I ran into was I needed longer screws to reattach the faux fur top to the metal frame.
The rug’s backing was thicker than I anticipated, but it was an easy fix.
I love this faux fur side table so much!
I recently added this Sherpa chair. Sometimes that side table moonlights as an ottoman.
The table is light weight so it can easily be pulled into any room.
CRAFT STAPLES AT EVERYDAY EDITS
I found this rug to try a new accessory to glam; like maybe a bench.
Now I am thinking about what to do with the rest of the faux fur rug.
