Add pretty curtains to a console table to hide storage. Use fusible webbing for a no-sew option. Embellish with a ribbon or a strip of coordinating scrap fabric along the bottom edge. Hang the curtains between the table legs using tension rods.
Another idea I had was to mount a curtain rod right at the top of my project table for a roll of craft paper that can be rolled out to keep the table clean when a big paint project is underway. -OMG this is amazing for making sewing patterns
