DIY Sherbert Striped Tablecloth


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.


Perfect for summer entertaining and a really easy project to DIY. Keep reading to see the full tutorial on how to make your own…

Canvas drop cloth in a size of your choice
Four favorite sherbet paint colors (2 sample sizes in each color)
Paint brushes
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
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.
3.Continue with the second, third, and fourth strips
4.Let it dry completely and apply touch ups as needed
5. Then strip off the tape for gorgeous new summertime tablecloth!


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… 🙂

liz, such a cute idea – i was wondering where to get a nice cheap tablecloth when i first saw this on your insta-G but now i get it – drop cloth!! cool!! thanks for the tutorial!
