The Happy Tablecloth :o)

I had been looking for a tablecloth to brighten up my dark wood kitchen table. What I could afford, I didn't like, and what I did like...well let's just say, I'd prefer to have enough money left to serve a meal on the new tablecloth. (Plus I'm cheap) Fast forward to one of my routine thrift shop ventures. There it was. A sad little blue tablecloth, probably cast away without a second thought from a wedding or baby shower. I save it's life for $4.99 then stop at Hobby Lobby with my 40% off coupon & pick up a stencil & some fabric paint for under $5.00. (Score!)

I forgot to buy the stencil dabber paint brushes. Never fear, I have make-up sponges. (Brilliant!) I randomly painted the circle designs all over the cloth. No pattern, just where ever I thought needed filling. I think it turned out well. It seems to be "Happy" now. :o)

We're just going to pretend that it doesn't need ironing, k? Thx! ;o)
