trimmings.

i've been wanting to add some sort of embellishment to this table skirt on the bookshelf-shelf that my dad and i built, and i finally got around to it last night. i bought some black grosgrain ribbon and went to town...

in the works:

mika loves projects that involve string. string is his favorite.

and, i know you guys are going to want specific instructions on this, but i am mathematically-challenged, so i just snipped and hot-glued as i went along. it probably would've been better to measure everything out, but it would've taken me ten times longer, and i didn't care that much!

ta-da!

  1. Perfect...and I am with you "get 'er done" no measuring, no tutorial, just results. Great job and the ideal touch.

  2. I love how this looks with the other peaks of fabrics I see in the room, the pattern created by the ribbon is really striking. Love how the skirt hides stuff...great job!

  8. Whoa...I'm freaking out at the coincidence--a year or two ago, I bought the letters Y and O at Joann Fabrics because I thought it was funny. Those same brown letters! I've been meaning to paint or decoupage them. Weird!
