graphic painted tablecloth

Painting a tablecloth is a great way to dress up and freshen your linens this season. I love the look this graphic black criss-cross gives to a simple white cloth. It becomes a perfect backdrop for a table filled wth party treats or everyday eats.

All it takes to create this look is a freshly laundered tablecloth, a paint brush, and fabric paint. Lay a drop cloth under the tablecloth and get to work painting a repeating pattern. The criss-cross pattern is possibly the easiest to paint, but you can try out circles, hearts, or a simple floral pattern. Anything done in a repeat of a basic color will bring a nice graphic punch. Set the paint after it is dry from the backside with an iron for seamless wash and wear style. This one I definitly love!

    […] Mér finnst þetta vera frábær hugmynd til að lappa upp á gamla og slitna dúka, ekki það að ég eigi marga dúka, hvað þá slitna og gamla. En það er sjálfsagt hægt að fá dúka á góðum prís í Góða hirðinum eða álíka stöðum.  Ég rakst á þennan dúk um daginn,  ásamt fleiri sniðugum og einföldum DIY hjá  A Subtle Revelry. […]
