New Look For Only $2.00

It seems like I always want to change things up around here at COASTAL CHARM...I guess that could get very pricey, but here at COASTAL CHARM, it's not too bad at all. Since we sold our beach house two years ago and had to combine two households into one...then that left me with lots and lots of accessories. I have a room in our cottage where I store all my goodies...much cheaper than renting a storage building and very convenient! One of my accent tables in the family room had a black tablecloth and a red silk topper...I was pleased with the look, but looking for a change...so I went to my stash and found this Target zebra shower curtain and I knew I had just what I needed. I had found this shower curtain at a garage sale for only $2.00 (looks like new)...got into my fabric stash and came out with some burlap and so now, I had all I needed for my new look! I never thought about using a shower curtain for a tablecloth...but it works just fine because the table sits in a corner...have you ever done this?

I like it. Never thought about using a shower curtain outside of the bathroom. Great idea.

I love the zebra print and would have never thought to top with burlap...it looks great!! I would have never guessed it started life as a shower curtain either. Great transformation for $2.00!

Looks great, Linda. Happy WW!!!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Linda, If you would not have told me I would have never guessed! This table is trendy and so fun. It certainly begs for attention, and it should- very chic.
I made something with burlap for a post today too!

I'm a little sad... I have the same shower curtain hanging in my bathroom right now but I bought mine at target and paid $25 for it!!! No fair!!! I would have never thought of using it as a tablecover, now I got ideas when I change though! Thanks!

Nope, not a shower curtain for a tablecloth but tablecloths and sheets for curtains.

Joyce said...

From a $2 shower curtain to a tablecloth is a good thing. Good idea.

The table looks great! I wouldn't have paired these two together - but I really like the look. Thanks for linking up to Be Inspired today!

Love it! I haven't used a shower curtain for a table cloth, but the shower curtain in my guest bathroom is a table cloth LOL. I knew what I wanted but couldn't find it - not a shower curtain nor fabric to make it myself. Happened to cut down an aisle with seasonal stuff (fall in this case) and there was the fabric I had in my head - only someone had already hemmed it and tucked it into a package labeled "tablecloth" Sold. At first I was going to sew button holes in it and then thought "self, what a waste of time! Just buy a package of clip curtain rings" Love the lamp! (I have 2 myself LOL only my shades are square-ish).

Rachel said...

I've totally done that.
Try using bathroom curtains to make pillows and a duvet cover as a tablecloth.

Seamingly Smitten said...

So awesome! Did you even cut it into a circle and hem it or just drape it over?

Love that cute zebra print and burlap together! Makes such a statement.

Popcorn Served Daily said...

It's perfect!

You have a room filled with goodies, I have a supply lair. Whatever it's called, it works, right?

Jan @ bobbypins boardwalk said...

That's a wonderful look. I love it. I think it's special when an area has it's own personality and this nook certainly does. Excellent!

Lou Cinda said...

Sooooooo cute! Love the tassel too!

Lou Cinda :)

Stacey said...

I like that alot! How neat to have a room that is filled to the brim. :)

Cass @ That Old House said...

I have used every type of fabric item except thong panties for tablecloths -- curtains, shower curtains, shawls ... especially on round tables in corners! Love to tuck under those corners, and no one knows they exist.

It looks great, love your zebra/burlap combo. Nice!

Ann @ makethebestofthings said...

You are so creative! Yes, I've done this and more. I look at all fabric home goods as yardage and it's always cheaper than buying it by the yard. Love the zebra combo with the burlap.

Debbie said...

Thanks Linda for linking up:)

Diann said...

I am so glad someone else doesn't think it is odd to use shower curtains! They are just a wonderful large piece of fabric. And they seem to go clearanced pretty quickly. So, I always snag up pretty ones!

Have a great weekend Linda!

Beverly @ FlamingoToes.com said...

Very cute. Love the whole thing together, especially with the little tassel. Too sweet.

Pam said...

Clever and resourceful! That's always a winning combo!

Charlotte said...

Great idea! I'm gonna have to be on the lookout for a great shower curtain or bedsheet!

The Thrifty Designer said...

Cute new look. I love your magazine basket!

Rory from Tools Are For Women Too! said...

Nice project. I would love it if you would link this up in Modern Craftswoman Monday. Very well done. Rory

Stephanie Lynn said...

Oh I'm loving the zebra and burlap! Never thought of using a shower curtain...$2 is a fabulous deal for that much fabric! Great idea! Thanks so much for joining The Sunday Showcase. I greatly appreciate it! hope you have a wonderful week! ~ Stephanie Lynn

Marianne@Songbird said...

No I have never used a shower curtain as table cloth, but mine were never as cute as yours. Lovely little table vignette you have there. Love that black and white print.
Thank you for linking up at Beths party!

Lou Cinda said...

It's like you have an accessories store on-site! I have big closet like that. Still love this look!
