    I did mine similar to SAndygirl. I got some dowel rods and just some small screw hooks. Made sleeve like curtains. Had stops for the dowel rods so they wouldn't slip from the hooks. I had an 8' bench I attached the (3 pc) skirt to and worked fine. I did it in 3 sections so I wouldn't have to fight it. Cost all of Maybe $5.00. Did it myself. Simple screw hooks. Of course if the sides of your table is metal then the Velcro would be the answer. I would go with the industrial self adhesive. Sticks to the skirt and the side of the table. Good luck.

    i have done some skirts for displays at shows .....got sticky back velcro and put on tables then hemmed the bottom of skirt ....and did a pleat [just tuck and sew tuck and sew ] in the top it was easier that trying to gather and sew elastic.... then sewed fuzzy side of elastic on the skirt so WHEN it goes in washer it doesn't stick to everything

    I did something similar. Didn't sew at the time. I bought a solid color plastic cloth & velcro sticky dots (both at the dollar store). Covered some storage crates, lasted till I moved (3yrs.)

    That is so neat. I should do that too. I've got all kinds of stuff under my cutting table and it looks cluttered. Oh you ladies are so crafty!!!

    I think of all the ideas presented here - if it would work with your table - I like Jan in VA's idea best.

    1) the spring loaded rods are comparatively easy to install - and you would not get gunk on your table from the velcro

    2) there would be nothing to catch on the top side or top edge of the table i

    3) You would only need one layer of fabric with a rod pocket and hem - and if you bought a non-ravel fabric, you could even skip the hem. (A hem would make the fabric hang better, though.)

    4) You could make the "curtain" part as gathered or flat as the fabric called for - the sheerer/lighter the fabric, generally the more fullness is required.

    5) You could use as many "panels" as you wanted for openings for easy access to your stuff under the table.
