WFMW: Ancient Chinese Secret
Ok, so it's not ancient, nor Chinese, but I should have used Calgon because I have stained this thrifted table cloth a few times.
I went out Saturday looking for a new spring colored table cloth. Did I look at Bed Bath and Beyond or Linens N Things? No, I tortured myself by going to two different Ross Dress for Less stores and KMART. All the crazies were out. To prove that point I saw several of my students.
Anyway, discouraged because there was nothing at any of those bargain stores, I went into Sur La Table and Anthropologie. Maybe sales? One can dream. I found this and another that looked like this! After fantasizing about the beautiful tables they would make, I came home and got real.
To cover up the stains and to make the tablecloth fit my table better, I folded it like this...
Then I used a table runner I already had to cover up the folds and the stains too.
Using what I have works for me!
