I picked this up from Oxfam yesterday for £3.99. (I spied it in the shop window, charged in there and grabbed it out of the window display. I don't think they were too impressed)
It's a fantastic retro tablecloth, made of some really heavyweight material. Apart from a small pollen stain it's in pristine condition. (Hopefully that stain will come out in the wash - any tips? it's on the white part, so I figure I'll just bleach it).
As lovely as the tablecloth is (even in its un-ironed condition), as you can see from the picture, it doesn't fit the table.
I'm pondering which option I should take.
a) pretend it fits the table and get on with it
b) turn it into some placemats or napkins (with random portions of the pattern)
c) turn it into a bag (or two).
The dining room is the only room that will realistically work with the colours, otherwise could perhaps have turned it into cushion covers. What do you think?
