WFMW – Tablecloth for the Bed   13 comments


I have family coming for the July 4th week and I wanted to make the guest room look less boring and more inviting without spending the money for a new bedspread!


One afternoon I was looking through my linen closet and a tablecloth my dear sister purchased for me at the Good Will jumped out at me. I thought to myself – too bad this isn’t a bedspread. Then it hit me! Why not! This could work! And lo and behold:



Works for Me! Perky little tablecloth huh?! Now I’m thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas and that just has me way too excited about decorating my guest room for all the seasons!  Oh am I in trouble!
