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!
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.
