and really wanted a big one for that big 9 foot long dining table we have
but when they are that big- they tend to cost a chunk.
So I thought I would try to make a faux grainsack tablecloth
with a drop cloth and a little red paint.
so there are probably much better tutorials out there if you search.
I started with a large drop cloth- in a 9×12 size
I decided on just 2 stripes for simplicity.
You can pick up thicker or thinner tape depending on the size of the lines you would like.
I taped down the whole length of the dropcloth
for one whole line- being careful to keep it straight- and then taped the next line alongside, etc.
A tube of Martha Stewart craft paint in Christmas Red and an old brush came next.
(which is more like dotting it than brushing it)
The whole project probably only took about 45 minutes to complete.
Much less expensive than a grainsack this size
and it gives me the look I wanted for a tablecloth and for somewhere else I used it
More to come…
I wanted to share something fun and exciting from the Sears Cheer Headquarters today too!
Are you familiar with the
Sears Cheer Tree & Headquarters?
It’s a fun place over at Sears.com where Ty Pennington and George Hirsch
are sharing their decorating tips and tidbits.
I am super excited to share that my Christmas bedroom from last year and a few photos
and tidbits of my own are being shared over on the Sears Cheer Tree this week!
