My nightstand always looks messy because there are always a pair of shoes or a purse or something under it. I got sick of looking at it so I made a super quick skirt for it.
I took a thrifted sheet, and cut along the edge with a small seam allowance.
Then I measured the amount needed to reach the floor(ish) and cut along the length of both hemmed sides of the sheet. I sewed them together to make one long strip, then gathered it on my serger and attached it to the rectangle.
It’s a three sided skirt because the table has a drawer. So I tacked the sides to the front edge so it would stay on better.
And it should cover a multitude of sins. Or at least the messy underneath of my nightstand.
