And cows, tin, actually.....my list of likes is large!
So, on a stop at T.J. Maxx on Friday, of course
the blue & green tablecloths caught my eye. I have
learned that tablecloths or shower curtains are a much
cheaper mode of acquiring great fabric.
By combining a table runner & tablecloth in the same fabric,
I was able to quite easily make a new sink skirt for our original sink.
*The trick is to save/use as much of the hemmed edges in your work!
Although I am not one for matchy matchy, right at this moment
I like the matching tablecloth on our kitchen table.
All the fabric was about $25.00 ~ including the tablecloth. And I
know it will be happy in the washing machine too...as it was all
meant for table use.
Another view of the table...the chairs are all painted
with scenes from our farm. The large jelly cupboard in the
background is about the same mid-1850s vintage as our farm...
it is our kitchen pantry.
And here is the sweet sink again, all dressed up with a new skirt.
I attach all my sink skirts via Velcro, so this can be swapped
out with the previous one when desired.
Close up of the fabric. Will work nicely into Autumn!
How about you, what are your current "go to" colors?
