I spy laminated cotton: Apartment Therapy

Check out this super cute before and after project that Ashley Poskin did for Apartment Therapy! She tricked out an old card table with some spray paint and a square of laminated cotton. Staple projects are my favorite! All you need is an old piece of furniture, a staple gun loaded with 1/4" staples and some oilcloth or laminated cotton. Bam, in just 30 minutes you have a transformed piece of furniture. Ashley used the Robert Kaufman Slicker fabric with lady bugs. Love!

Laminates are softer and are easier when working with a round table top. Laminated cotton holds up just as well as oilcloth, so don't be afraid to use this fabric. If a laminate print work better for your decor go for it. It will hold up to wear and tear of everyday use. Check out this blog post to learn more about the two fabrics. What is great is that both fabrics are water resistant and wipe down super easy.

Wouldn't this be the cutest kids table for Thanksgiving?

Now head on over and see how she did it here at Apartment Therapy.
