CHECK OUT THIS BEFORE + AFTER SIDE TABLE

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

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. 

SIDE TABLE

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

STEPS

  1. 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.

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.

  2. I actually bought a similar stool for a great price at a local store (I honestly think they mislabeled the price!) I love yours, and you’re right, the price was great. Can’t beat $16.00. I have a few Ikea faux fur rugs thrown around my living room and love it to protect the furniture from the dog’s muddy paws or wet face — she’s a terrier and doesn’t shed. Can’t wait to see if you figure out another faux fur project! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home

  3. Very sweet Laura, I love the faux fur. Definitely fits my glam style. Thanks for sharing. I am happy to feature your faux fur side table at Love Your Creativity. Happy weekend Laura. Hugs
