Traditional Living Room with Skirted Table and Mirrored Side Table
A skirted table can soften a room, especially if you have other wood furniture, molding or beams. To save more money, hunt in the fabric remnant section, or use a white canvas or even a long tablecloth to cover the table and add a glass top. Parker Kennedy Living also added a round mirror to the top of the side table. Mirror companies often stock round mirrors, which is more affordable than having one cut to the size. "That’s a good way to get a lot of bang for the buck for a table under $50," said interior designer Lance Jackson. "It puts a little more custom look to it."
