    Back in March I was sharing some sneak peeks on instagram about a secret summer project I was working on and today I’m finally sharing pictures of it! I partnered with ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape to create this sherbert striped tablecloth made from a dropcloth and some bright sherbert paint colors.

    1.Divide the cloth drop cloth in four equal parts with strips of tape. A canvas dropcloth is a great choice
    because there’s already plastic on the inside which makes it easy to paint on as it shouldn’t leak
    through.

    2. Set up your painting station in a well ventilated location (mine was on the sidewalk since we don’t have a backyard space!). Decide what order you want your colors to go and start on the first strip.

      I love this! If you include the mint and emerald green, these are all the inspiration colors for my daughter’s bedroom makeover, based on some honeycomb-patterned pillow shams I got at Target. I’ve been debating about what to do for curtains and when I saw your post it hit me–THESE would make fabulous curtain panels! Paint, hang with clips and I’m done! Thank you, thank you. Off to get supplies in the morning… :)
