I think you know how much I love using drop cloth in my projects. I’m not alone because I gathered up some more ways to use drop cloth in the home. They range from simple little projects to more complex. These are some very talented ladies so grab a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage because you will lose yourself from all of the inspiration I am about to show you. There is a drop cloth project for every DIY level, budget, and style. And because we all love drop cloths to use in our decorating projects this is Part 1 with Part 2 coming soon. Enjoy!
The first project up is from Ashley of Domestic Imperfection.’ She updated brown stools more in line with her style. Now the bar stools look more like her decorating style. And she makes it look so easy.
Amber Oliver of the blog by the same name, shows us how she dyed her drop cloth patio curtains. Dyeing drop cloth is on my project list so I was happy she shows us how. She created a lovely patio space with the curtains.
Sometimes you need a custom size. Have you ever priced out custom upholstery? It can be expensive, Tania writes at Little Vintage Cottage. Not only did she build a love seat from pallets but she created the custom cushion and you got it…drop cloth cushions.
Don’t you just love throw pillows? And are you thinking drop cloth pillows are so plain. Think again because Marie of The Interior Frugalista created a lovely turquoise rosette pillow. You know you can paint almost anything. Marie will show you how to make one for yourself.
Another project Marie took on is to use drop cloths for upholstery fabric. Once again she painted it and used it to reupholster the seats after she painted the chair frames.
Vineta’s blog is The Handyman’s Daughter. Vineta made a rug from a drop cloth. Yes, you did read that right. So isn’t that a wonderful way to have a custom designed rug in the perfect size for a fraction of the cost.
I melt at the sight of doll furniture and this little doll bed that Denise over at My Thrifty House fixed up is adorable. And you know the cover is made from a piece of drop cloth.
Denise also uses drop cloths as upholstery material. She updated an old thrift store chair and now it has a place of honor in her office.
This project is one I will have to try soon. Toni of Small Home Soul created a basket liner from drop cloth. It really gives the wire basket style.
Toni also created a throw pillow using drop cloth material. I love the stencil she used. And it brightens up the bed.
I really enjoyed looking at all of these great ideas using drop cloths. I hope you did also because I am not done yet, Part 2 is coming soon.
