Oh yes I did add feathers to my dining room table!
I found two rolls of feathers from Tuesday Morning for $8 a piece.
That was three years ago now and the feathers are still secure and beautiful (the pics are of current condition).
Use a staple gun to secure.
Don’t like the feathers? Add lace, ribbon, rope, tin or wooden shingles. Silk or leather fringe would also look amazing.
Now… the table was a hand me down from a good friend.
I sanded, painted black and topped it off with polyurethane.
