Saving Money on Tablecloths

October 27, 2004

Tablecloths to fit my large dining room table were quite pricey and I had a very tight budget. One day while folding laundry, the idea came to measure a twin flat sheet on my table. Off I went to the fabric store for appropriate lace, edged one, then another I'd purchased from a yard sale. No one knew the difference but me.

Instead of trying to find a window to make these valances fit on, I decided to use them for side table covers. They are also foam backed so anyone placing a wet item on the cloth, will not spoil the finish of the table.
