Hey friends! Last week I posted a photo on Instagram (follow me HERE!) of our decorated Christmas tree. It looked beautiful, but we had a bit of a tree skirt conundrum. Our dogs think that any fabric laying on the floor is a dog toy, so a traditional tree skirt was not an option. We are not spending any money on Christmas decorations this year, but we are spending time cleaning out the garage, so I went there first. I found some old shelves that were once part of a bookshelf and an idea for a DIY tree skirt was born.
Industrial Style DIY Tree Skirt
The shelves were plain, cheap, and spattered with white paint. Talk about trashy. We bought some chunky hinges to attach three shelves like a room divider screen and add some industrial style.
Next I “wallpapered” each board with a strip of paintable wallpaper too add some texture, and gave the entire “skirt” a coat of creamy white.
The final step involved a tiny piece of sandpaper and a little distressing. You know I can’t resist a little distressing.
Our finished skirt is about 13 inches tall, so we had to lift up a few of the lowest branches to slide it under our tree.
It is SO hard to photograph the details of the wallpaper!
Here’s a closer shot.
Our family room is my favorite place this time of year.
And now we don’t have to worry about the dogs eating our tree skirt!
