Giveaway: 2 Yards of Butik76’s Scandinavian Designed Oilcloth

We’ve been doing a lot of giveaways around here lately and I hope you’ve been enjoying them.  I really do my best to offer up only top-quality items that I would want for my own family or home.  Today is no exception.  After spotting these lovely Scandinavian designed oilcloths on pinterest, I knew I had to have one – for you and for myself.  

If you’re not familiar with oilcloth, it’s a waxed cotton that can be wiped clean over and over.  Butik76 has a gorgeous modern collection that they sell by the yard.  They are a beautiful way to protect a surface during meals and craft projects and can be used as a traditional tablecloth, a shelf-liner, or can even be tucked under a table, pulled taut, and tacked to the tabletop for a neat finish (an idea I love for inexpensive Craig’s List or IKEA finds – see all kinds of cool inspiration for doing this here).

It’s as simple as ordering the amount you need (they suggest a 5″ overhang on each side of the table).  Because oilcloth doesn’t fray, there’s no hemming required and just like that you’ve got yourself a stunning and spill-resistant tablecloth.

If that isn’t the perfect product for modern parents and messy kids then I don’t know what is!

Butik76 sent me 2 yards of the Big Droplet Greige and I’m thrilled with the transformation that’s taken place in my eat-in kitchen.  The neutral print has added just the right amount of modern chic to my traditional kitchen AND I no longer have to constantly worry about my wood table.

Before I wrap up and get to the giveaway rules, I wanted to point out that there are also several non-table cover ways to use this material (do a pinterest search for “oilcloth projects” and you’ll see what I mean).  Check out these beach take-along pouches Martha Stewart Living made using Batik76 fabric in their August 2011 issue.
