Color My World Challenge // Week 4: Fabric
This week’s challenge was using fabric with your chosen color. Inspired by my inspiration photos, I decided to make a table cloth using canvas drop cloth and yellow paint.
I thought about using several types of paint, and decided on Martha Stewart’s multi-surface craft paint.
I bought a drop cloth that was rectangular and I knew beforehand that the sides weren’t going to reach the floor but rather than buying the larger size drop cloth, I liked the idea of doing something asymmetrical.
After playing around with it and thinking of different ways to cut it up and stitching it back together to create a new shape, I liked simply gathering the sides and tying them together.
Then I took a large brush and went to town with yellow paint along the edge.
I had to trim a piece off and hemmed the edge. The nice thing about drop cloth is that it’s hemmed on both sides, so the other side was good to go.
I tied the sides with pieces of twine.
It was a really fun little project and I like what it adds to the dining room!
Next week, Tuesday May 1st, will be the last week of this challenge and it will include a link party where you can show off any way you’ve added color to your home!
