Our table skirt in the living room needed an update, and today was the day. The fabric I used is shimmery and crinkled – you know, wrinkled on purpose. Ironing it doesn’t get the wrinkles out. Steam ironing it doesn’t get the wrinkles out. Finally decided they manufactured it that way. How did they do that? Those crinkles are in there to stay.
The skirt has six pleats set into the top edge. Might try turning that center pleat so you see a pleat on each side of the front section. We’ll see.
Our living room is actually HH’s office. When he began working from home, he needed his own space. What room in your home is the least used? If you have a living room, that’s probably the one!
I wish the sofa could go to another room. HH’s office would be all his own space! But, nowhere else to put it. We don’t dare get rid of it, ’cause it’s someone’s bed – occasionally. Yep! It’s one of those uncomfortable fold-out things that nobody wants to sleep in. We try to avoid making anyone use it, y’all.
We’ve had our sofa/bed about 15 years and may have it another 15. It’s still in very good shape, so I can’t justify getting rid of it. Sure wish I’d chosen a neutral fabric!
This is the old table skirt I made many years ago to match the sofa.
See how badly it needed an update? Still love the topper. Can’t help it – I’m just a floral/fruit girl, y’all. I’ll probably find a way to recycle it.
I decided to go ahead and turn the table so you can see 2 pleats in the front.
Ahhhh. Much better!

Thanks for visiting today. I’ve enjoyed it, as I always do!
