I've been wanting to cover my kitchen table with vintage, old-fashioned looking oilcloth for quite awhile now! I've seen oilcloth in stores and on blogs, so I finally ordered some a few weeks ago. There are lots of online sources and I bought mine here. I needed 1 1/2 yards for my round table. Since my table is 48 inches across and the oilcloth was only 47 inches wide, I had to sew a piece on the end to make it just a little bit longer. There is a small seam at the very end, but it is hardly noticeable. It was very easy to sew with!
I just LOVE red and white polka dots! But, I had a such a hard time deciding which oilcloth fabric to choose! There are so many pretty choices!
I stapled it underneath all around the table, so it would stay on tight.
Oilcloth is very easy to care for, too! I just clean mine with a little dish soap.
This is the after photo of a tool caddy I found at a yard sale for $.50. It had Disney characters painted all over it!
I forgot to take a before picture, but I primed it first to cover Winnie the Pooh, then painted it.
My oldest son Josh found these cute dishes at a friend's yard sale a couple years ago and bought them for me! He knew I liked cherries! He's so sweet! They were only $5.00 for 10 place settings, including bowls and mugs! The green checked silverware is from a yard sale, too. They were $1.00 for 8 place settings!!!
My kitchen definitely needed some more color! I think it looks great now, especially for the summertime!
