After I finished Beckett’s table, we had our first little craft session and I instinctively grabbed a trash bag to cover the top. While incredibly functional, it’s not very attractive or practical to keep reusing. It made me think of an oil cloth shop that I pass on my way to work but have never had the chance to venture inside. Over the weekend, I did exactly that and came out with some orange striped oil cloth.
I love this project because it was cheap, quick and easy. The trip to the store took longer than anything else.
Here’s what I used:
• 48″x48″ piece of oil cloth
• 24″ String
• Tape Measurer
The fabric came in 48″ width so I got just over a yard to make it a nice even square.
Flipped it over to the back side and measured to the center both sides so I knew where to draw my circle.
To draw the circle, I tied the string around the pen and held it in the center. I had to readjust in a couple of spots because its hard to do in one motion. My string wasn’t an exact 24″ but closer to 23″ which makes the entire width of the circle 46″.
I couldn’t be happier with the finished piece! It adds some color in here all while being totally functional. Any other kid room projects I should know about? I love getting inventive in these spaces.
