Hello AT'ers,

I was in Hudson, NY this weekend and saw a few vintage grasscloth covered console tables, similar to the one pictured above and here for $2900.

I love this look but it's out of my price range, but I was thinking that maybe I could get a similar effect by applying grasscloth on more resonably price parsons table, such as the ones they have at West Elm.

I'm a novice DIYer and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or suggestions on how to accomplish this? Also, would it be important to have a real wood surface or could one apply this to a laminate surface?

All the best, Rebecca
