I wanted to block that view, yet let in air circulation, but on a budget. I am ordering rolls of high quality plastic tablecloths.


I will cut the plastic in 6 inch wide strips by 8 feet long and attach them to the roof line.

What kind of paint can I use on a vinyl tablecloth that, when I wipe, it won't smear, or take off the paint?

By Misty

If you want to use rubber stamps, I would suggest Stayz On permanent ink. If you want to paint it, your best bet would be to buy clear vinyl to go over the top (you can stitch the edges of the tablecloth and the vinyl together). Fabric stores sell clear vinyl, or, for a cheaper option, buy a clear shower curtain and cut to size.

There are many uses for the cheap plastic tablecloths. How do you use them other than their intended use?

I used to put them under the highchairs when the kids were little. I also have backed curtains with them to help block out wind during cold winters.


They make great paint cloths also.

How do I make large bows using plastic table cloths?

By Sandra Starkey from Springfield, LA

We cut ours in long strips and tied them as you would any bow. A few years back I went to a party supply store and bought a roll of red plastic tablecloth like the ones used on banquet tables and decorated the porch posts and all in bows for Christmas. Weatherproof and reusable.
