hand-painted wilderness tablecloth : diy

TableclothDIY4-1In my honest opinion, a tablecloth is an equally ingenious and underrated kitchen object. Many people tend spend a lot of money on their dining room furniture, given that kitchens and dining rooms are generally the gathering place of the home. Yet, what they then use to protect their tables are nothing more than a few tiny rectangular placemats. Guys, that’s like getting out of the shower and only drying your kneecaps. No? Well, I personally believe that the entire table needs to be covered. 

So what stops most people from using a tablecloth? To begin, they usually don’t want to hide their expensive table but rather show it off when company comes for a visit. It can also be hard to find a good-looking tablecloth. Then there’s that extra step of having to wash it after meals. This DIY will address those issues. 

Tablecloth DIY 7Materials for a hand-painted tablecloth:

Either a

Plastic tablecloth
Acrylic paint
Brushes

Or

Cloth tablecloth
Fabric marker

Tablecloth DIY 3Steps:

1. Lay out your tablecloth in a large room.

2. Paint your design.

3. Let dry.

4. Use with fervour! 

Tablecloth DIY 5If you do not wish to wash the tablecloth after meals, then opt to use a plastic one. That way, you can recycle it after a few uses, and start over with a new design!

Tablecloth DIY 8I chose to make a wild and whimsical tablecloth to match the rustic decor of The Little Barn. Given that Canada day and Independence Day are just around the corner, this is an opportune time to make your own patriotic one! I guarantee that guests will ask you which store you purchased it from. You will then be able to boast that it was made by your own two able hands. Talk about a ‘wildly’ successful craft project!

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Early morning post (before I start painting our living room walls). We viewed our first acreage in four years last month. While the outside of the property was one hundred times more appealing than the interior, it’s inspired us to see more. We’re country folk at heart- both being raised on farms and acreages. We probably will not stop until we find that piece of prairie land that whispers our names. 🌾💛 Happy birthday, husband. I’m sorry that your birthday doesn’t always go as planned. Also, transitioning from you being gone for weeks, to then being home for a few hours, only to leave again is anything but smooth at first. But know that Remy and I do love and appreciate you so much. I hope that you have a wonderful year (since we’ll probably be spending much of it apart), wherever you now are.
