Rectangular Skirted Tables..Need Help!

I need ya'll's help.  I wanna put these pretty tailored skirted tables next to our bed and use them as nightstands...but I told ya'll I'm not DIY...I'm like DIFM (do it for me).  There.  I said it.  Yes, I'm kinda lazy like that.  I like pretty things and I like to pay others to make it for me.  Do you still love me anyway?  I want these.


(Wall Street Journal)

(La Dolce Vita Blog)

(So Haute Blog)

(Gretchen Leigh Clark Interiors blog)

I want more images.  Have you seen some on blogs that I could check out?  Will you share with me?  Also, has ANYONE seen where I can BUY one?  Help a sista out.  
*UPDATE*
You awesome readers sent me this
(Wisteria)
So I can get 2 for $654.  Yikes.  I might do it though.
But....then I found this.  Randomly.

I can buy 2 for $199 here. Problem?
They don't list the dimensions online.  Annoying.  So I guess I'm gonna call.  If they are the same, I could buy the bones from here and then the nicer skirts from Wisteria.  If that would work I could buy 2 for $360.
Guess I better get on the phone.
Thoughts?
*Update- I did get the dimensions over the phone and I found someone to custom make the skirts!  Stay tuned!

  5. I believe Bryn Alexander posted a tutorial on how she made her skirted bed tables. Of course that doesnt help you if you dont want to DIY but maybe you can convince a crafty friend.

  6. I know Bryn from Bryn Alexandra used smaller expedit cases from Ikea and made the skirt (I'm sure you could hire someone to make that), added a glass top and they seem to work perfectly as nightstands.

  7. Oh girl, I feel ya! I'm not a DIYer either!!! I can figure some stuff out or I "pretend" to do stuff. But, most of the time I end up ordering or Paying someone else to do the dirty work. :$

  9. I don't mind certain diy projects, but when it comes to upholstery or sewing skills beyond what I know I always find someone more skilled than I to do the work. 1st, you can find a local upholsterer...take a pic with you, they will tell you exactly how much fabric is needed and make it for you waaaay less then Wisteria wanted that obscene amount of money! Or, even some alterations places make smaller items like that.

  10. Check out tablevogue.com. I don't think it's the size you need, but they do some custom work and the prices are great! Love this idea post pictures when you're finished.

  11. Yep, Elizabeth @ The Mustard Ceiling just previewed one yesterday that she made - and it looks just like your first inspiration photo. I try to do some stuff on my own, but I'm with you, there are just some things I can't do myself.

  12. Brynn used two of the Expedit four cube shelves from IKEA and sewed two skirts to fit. I'm sure there's a seamstress out there who could sew them for you, and you'd get to pick the fabric!!

  14. I'm no help in the nightstands, but I just wanted to say that I'm FULLY on board with DIFM. :)

  15. You crack me up with your DIFM! You sound like me! Unless I know I can (and want to) do it myself...buy it! Totally worth it, if you love it!

  21. Love the idea of a skirted night stand - all that storage underneath would be great! I don't sew so I feel your pain. :)

  22. I know someone that can make them for you. She works only for "good friends" and designers. (I'm her "good friend") She's excellent, been in the business for 25 years and has done so many fantastic projects. I can forward your blog to her and you can take it from there. Let me know if you are interested.
