A faux fur rug is needed for this side table. If you purchase a rug in the links below I will earn a very small commission.
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 couches and dark wood furniture. Faux fur is a fun fabric to work with year-round. It adds a touch of whimsy to space. And I had the vision to create something with this fun, fluffy fur element. After a few unsuccessful faux fur accessories, I settled on this table to make a faux fur side table.
How to Make a Faux Fur Side Table
It took me a year to create a seven-minute faux fur side table. I blame it on our 90+ pound, Bernese Mountain dog, Chloe.
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. I was reluctant to bring in a fur accessory for fear the side table would either shed or be a magnet for dog hair and dust.
But, when I found this side table at Homegoods for next to nothing and a flokati rug for $16.00 at Marshall’s, I knew this was an opportunity to go for my vision of a faux fur table. I found this faux rug on Overstock too. And Amazon has an inexpensive rug that would be perfect for faux fur crafts.
I rationalized the decision with the face we already have a house full of fur, so what is a little more.
And, a fluffy side table would soften and girly up any space.
Faux Fur Side Table
- 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 staple the rug to the tabletop.
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.
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!
It adds a sense of whimsy to both the living and/or dining room. The table is lightweight 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.
