Why I don't like skirted tables.



The fabric is always hiding an ugly table. Or worse.

Naughty.....but very funny!! I love skirted tables, once in a while, just for dining, not forever. It seems dusty and old. I'm old but don't want to be surrounded by it. Ginny

So THAT's why all the Lady Bloggers get so defensive on this issue...

Isn't that what bed skirts are for? I dislike dining at a table with a skirt that gets in the way of my legs. When you're tall, it's pretty difficult to cross your legs under a table with out getting all tangled up in a table cloth.

Yes! The fabric weighs nothing, but god is that irritating, having cloth sort of clinging to your legs when you're at the dinner table.

(Not to mention your dildo getting all dusty...)

Martha Stewart has the exact same post in last month's "Living". Same photo, same LPD (large pink dildo).

Copycat.

So funny. My first good laugh of the day. Thanks Decorno. But I do like skirted tables for the hiding my piles of crap effect although they are a bother to eat at.

By the by... do you know this blog?

http://www.whateverradio.com/website/blogs.php

it's written by Martha Stewart's daughter and while her radio & TV shows are LAME, her blog has some photos of her gorgeous apartment, jewellery, food porn (if you're into that sorta thing). And she, too, is an angry leftist, so you should enjoy that element...

Man, and I've been putting my LPD on top of the table, next to the artful arrangement of first editions.

I think that tablecloth is from Ballard Designs... just thought I'd mention that I have the burlap curtains and they seriously rock. They're nice quality and look kind of super natural. (Not supernatural.)

That looks to be to be an argument FOR skirted tables!

Love the post! You have no idea of the things you will find hiding under our various tablecloths, draperies and assorted miscreant textiles...no wonder the family never visits...

people! people! people! skirted tables are different than tablecloths! a proper table cloth should not impede the laps of the diner. let's face it a skirted table is a sign that you are either cheap and lazy or addicted to fabric.

Sometimes a skirted table is acceptable. In a small space it can cover the junk you need to store. But why anyone would want to use one when they don't have stuff to hide is beyond me!

ALL I CAN SAY IS YOU ARE REALLY LUCKY I WAS NOT DRINKING MY COFFEE WHEN I SAW THE TABLE POST....I WOULD HAVE SPIT IT ALL OVER MY MAC BOOK "AIR"

AND YOU WOULD BE FACING A LAWSUIT!

HOW FUNNY ARE THESE COMMENTS?
HILARIOUS! DID YOU DO THAT WITH PHOTOSHOP?

THE MARTHA STEWART HAD ME CONVULSED.

Penelope Bianchi said...

I FORGOT. NO DINING TABLE SKIRTS!

ONLY EXCUSE FOR SKIRTED TABLES: YOUNG PEOPLE WITH NOT ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY A "CENTER" TABLE ARE ALLOWED TO SKIRT ONE JUST LIKE THAT ONE.

AND LATER IF THEY CAN AFFORD; THEY CAN FOLD IT UP AND STICK IT IN A CLOSET WITH THE TABLECLOTH; FOR DINNER PARTIES!

(I KNOW; DREAM ON!) MOST YOUNG PEOPLE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT A DINNER PARTY IS!

MY DAUGHTER DOES....AND LOVES HAVING THEM THANKS BE TO GOD!
