Weekend Warrior 2.0

Remember when I was contemplating getting this fabric?  Well, I got it.  And this weekend the husband and I built (he) and upholstered (me) the table project I had in mind for it.  I love navy blue, but really wanted something more muted for this table.  Luckily, I saw my vision on the underside of the fabric.  I just turned it inside out!

Here I am wrapping the leg

And the top (I hate corners!)

And the finished product:

The area needs a mirror and a little rearranging of the accessories, but I think she is a pretty little scale of the original inspiration.  Now I just have to find a metal basket.  I know I saw them on the cover of one of the home catalogs this month.  Any one remember?
