Drop Cloth Decorating
The web is alive with ideas of how to use common canvas drop cloths found at any hardware store for cheap, chic decorating. Drop cloths are the perfect material choice for lots of projects because they are thick, organic, neutral and washable. Here are some of my favorite ideas for uses for the common cloth.
How about as a casual tablecloth? Here The Vintage Chica added a little stitching to a basic drop cloth to turn it into an easy table cover. The great thing about drop cloths is that they are pre-hemmed and come in a variety of sizes.

I liked this look so much, I hung them in my own bedroom. I used simple clips to hang them from my rod, avoiding any sewing.
Finally, look how great drop cloths look covering a whole sofa.
Didn’t Jennifer from http://www.wheretheheartisblog.com/ do a great job on her first slipcover? And imagine the money she must have saved over traditional fabric from a store. I love this look for a beachy cottage.
These ideas have me so inspired, that I am actually cooking up a drop cloth project of my own. Hopefully, if all goes according to plan, I will be able to share in the next couple of weeks.
I’ll keep you posted!
