Drop Cloth - Still Lovin' It

Thursday, July 26, 2012

We all know how wonderfully economical and versatile drop cloth can be when it comes to sprucing up a room, right?  Well, in case you have been under a rock and have not heard of The Little Green Notebook blog, you might have missed Jenny's BHG feature on using drop cloth to make curtains.  Did you see it?  Jenny is one of my all-time favorite bloggers, so needless to say I was elated when I saw that she mentioned my striped curtains in her article.  My inner DIY goddess just did a cartwheel.  Thank you Jenny!  Now I wish I hadn't sold them in the yard sale, darn-it.


In case you are new to my blog or just want to walk down memory lane, here are a few links to projects I have featured using drop cloth:






What have you made using drop cloth?  Email me with your projects and I will pick a few to feature.

  9. I still can't get over that chair that you did with the welting! You amaze me, girl.
    I totally and completely love pretty fabrics, but I have to say, I was won over by how similar dropcloths look like natural linen, and also they are canvas duck so when I held it in my hand I realized just because dropcloths are inexpensive doesn't mean they translate to cheap-looking! I recently stenciled dropcloth curtains for my dining room and everyone that comes into my house goes right to them and says, where did you get these??? By the yard, dropcloths are the best deal going.

  10. How have I missed these awesome tutorials? I bought a bunch of dropcloth over a year ago to reupholster a chair and totally chickened out. The chair is still sitting in my living room a horrible mauve in a plastic-y feeling fake velvet. I'm going to study your posts now...
