Use old fashioned doilies in good condition to make great artwork. Frame them on a colorful mat board or cover a piece of cardboard with leftover fabric or wallpaper. Hang them on your wall.

That really shows how pretty they are, but it also keeps them from being laundered to death. They were made by hand, so many hours in each one, they are deserving of being featured. Great tip.
Another way to use old or soiled doilies that are past their best is to get a cheap canvas (desired size) paint it one colour, then layer old/soiled doilies in a random pattern and spray a contrasting colour over the top. When dried you can remove the doilies but the pattern will show through from the original base colour!
You could also do this with old net curtains, etc.. :)
