I love tablecloths. I really do! Do you wanna know why? Since dining tables are usually at least somewhat large, when you change the tablecloth, you can change the whole look of a room. Do you believe me? Think about what a huge difference it makes to throw a different bedspread or comforter on your bed, it’s the same idea. Bingo! The whole room seems to change, am I right? Of course I am! Changing the tablecloth could almost be akin to painting a wall. Only much quicker, less messy and, for fickle decorators like me, much easier to change the look of a room on a whim.
I have plenty of tablecloths. More than I should have, probably. I’m fickle, remember? I’ve noticed that in recent months, however, I really don’t use my real tablecloths very often. I have gotten creative and now use drapes and shower curtains instead and, I must say that I like the look of them so much more than my real tablecloths. Want to see?
First, my current favorite:
This Moroccan-looking number is the most amazing shade of blue. I can’t figure out how to photograph the color perfectly.
I love how the black flocked design is so bold. Yep, I love this shower curtain…turned table cloth.
Here is a shower curtain that I bought at Goodwill for $3. I love-a-love-a-love it! It is practically dripping with texture:
I also have some curtain panels that I like to use as tablecloths:
Here are some close-up pics so you can really appreciate the textures:
Yeah…I really like my pseudo-tablecloths. They don’t look exactly like what I see over and over in the tablecloth departments of stores. It’s a pretty fair bet that I’m not going to walk into anyone else’s home and see that their table matches mine. Call me crazy. Call me creative. Just don’t call me late for dinner (set on one of these creative table cloths, of course!).
What do you think? Have you ever stepped outside of the box and used something other than a tablecloth for a table cloth?
