Ruffled Bedskirt turned Tablecloth

Hello everyone! I've been meaning to do this particular post for a while, but kept forgetting to take pictures for it, and so today I FINALLY did, lol :) I had purchased one of these ruffled bedskirts for my bed, as I had seen one on a blog (forget which one), and loved it....then a short time later while visiting some blogs, I saw one that had used it for a tablecloth, and fell in love with the idea. So I purchased another (from, put it on my table, but felt something just wasnt' quite right.....first of all, all bedskirts only have 3 sides, and I wasn't liking the fabric used for the top...too shiny and sheer for my I have an Oak table, so it was showing thru. Soooo.... while out thrift shopping I found a nice white linen tablecloth that would work perfectly. I placed the tablecloth onto the table, and cut around it just below the top of the table...then I cut off the top of the bedskirt, and did a simple stitch to apply the ruffled part of the bedskirt to the tablecloth. Where the ends met, I just simply overlaped a bit, tucked it under, and finished stitching it in place, and tah dah!

You can see the raw edges of where I sewed the 2 together, which is just fine with me, as it gives it a more shabby chic look to it :)

These next photos are just a few more that I took, while taking photos of the Dining room is my favorite room in the whole house...I just love the feel and look of the room :)

Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend! The sun has been shining here in Michigan, but it is still way too cold for me...I'm soooooo ready for Spring, lol :)

Until next time sweet friends!!

I love this! Janae's table works with the normal size twin sheet but my table is smaller and oval so I really want to do one like yours. Now I have to find one! Your blog is beautiful! I used to breed and show silver persians and I adore your kitties. I am your newest follower. Glad I found you!

Rebecca said...


You are incredible.


Janae said...

Wow it looks great, I bet you love it, I sure love mine, lucky for me I liked the sheer shinny part on top which made it super easy! I ordered one for my bed too I am expecting to come in the mail in next few days I am so excited! I am following you now :)

Ginger said...

Oh so beautiful and shabby. I'm going to see if I can find one too. Would look beautiful in my tea room. Thanks for the idea.

Oh my goodness! I really like it. I'll be on the lookout now for ruffled bed skirts when I'm out thriftin'. I found one for a single bed not too long ago but passed it up because all of our beds are at least full size. I knew I should've bought it anyway. Thanks for sharing, it's beautiful! Jocelyne

Dixie said...

thanks for inviting me over! You did a wonderful job on that tablecloth... Now, if my Ricky complains... I'll have an alternative... but I think he'll like it much better as a bed ruffle! LOL

have a wonderful week. Love your blog.. and your dining room IS to die for!!

blessings. Dixie

Sherry said...

Liz said...

That is darling! I love it. I think that I would like to make one and tea stain it. Thank you for the great idea. I have never been to your blog before. It is so cute! :)


CIELO said...

I so love it! It turned out beautifully and I want one just like it! I've been craving a ruffled tablecloth like that for the longest time--way too expensive and I dunno how to sew ;)

Thanks for participating in our Show Off Your Cottage Monday and bringing me here!
