CREATING A TAILORED TABLE SKIRT

Designing the Executive Assistant's office for my commercial project turned out to be a little more challenging than I initially expected. With precise needs that couldn't be met by most conventional desks--specifically, a large surface top, closed design in the front, and a lot of open space underneath, going the ready-made route didn't seem likely. To solve all of her needs we opted to have a desk custom made using a long sheet of plywood and 3 basic metal file cabinets that the client already had in his warehouse. To finish everything off (and cover the rough construction) I had my seamstress make a tailored table skirt inspired by this one I found on Pinterest...

but with slight a modification that make more sense for their commercial space (placing the white trim about 2" from the edges so it doesn't get absolutely filthy). So her 130" wide x 36" deep desk looks like this from the front:
and this on the backside:

And it's all topped off with a custom glass top to protect the fabric. It took a few weeks, but we finally came up with THE PERFECT desk for her that she absolutely loves. And I love a happy client.
