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 Overstock.com), 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 tastes...plus 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 tablecloth....my 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 :)
