Give Away!


Summer is all about picnics and outdoor entertaining, which is why we love oil cloth! It is durable, never needs ironing and easy to wipe down, making it the perfect fabric for summer (or pretty much any season in the kitchen!).
From now until Tuesday evening at 8pm you can enter to win an oilcloth tablecloth in a fun shabby chic design from Lindsey Tollefson over at http://www.ltolly.blogspot.com/. Lindsey is an interior decorator who offers online consultations and other services at a great price. Just comment below and your name will be in the drawing for the tablecloth in this lovely design. If you don't need the tablecloth Lindsey suggests cutting it up to make an apron, a bag, a bib, or a fun picnic blanket that won't get dirty!
Thanks Lindsey and Oilcloth!

Oil Cloth is indeed splendid!! I love it, use it for easy clean up & great color factor...
and because it is so easy to clean up, its also used for art projects that get messy ;) Like playdough, painting, and even easter egg coloring.
How fun!
thanks

So darling! I have been searching high and low for a cute oil cloth design, and this one is perfect! I'm dying to cover my kids' little ikea table and chairs that have uncleanable stains and shmutz all over... oil cloth + staplegun= perfect coverup! :)

T.J. said...

I like the idea of cutting it up to make aprons, bibs, etc, but I wouldn't do that because I also like it just the way it is and can make lots of use of an out-of-doors tablecloth. Thanks for the chance to win!
