What a Lovely...Tablecloth?
Whilst rummaging through my cabinet to put out fresh dish towels, I came across a beautiful crimson table cloth amongst my kitchen linens. I had not put a Christmas cloth on my table as I didn't really want bright red nor did I feel so inclined as to go purchase something preferable. So you can imagine my pleasure at finding this jewel-toned cloth with a deep border. When did I pick this up? No idea. But I'm glad I did!
So I unfolded it and smoothed in on my table and hmm.... The border is only on one side. Odd. Uh. Strange, it seems to have some kind of pocket here on one end as well. I wonder what in the world; oh. I see.
Yes. It is a curtain panel. One single curtain panel.
Which makes me wonder even more why I purchased a single curtain panel and stored it with my kitchen linens. You might think I thought it was a table cloth and put it away? Perhaps. Then again, it was not in the package so clearly at some point I looked it over.
Are you now curious as to what I did with the one single curtain panel?
I put it on my table. With the one bordered edge facing the part of the room most visible.
Yes. My name is Sara and I have a curtain on my table.
If that shocks you, get a load of this. I did not iron the creases out of the curtain I put on my kitchen table.
I have a creased curtain on my kitchen table and I am pretending it is a beautiful holiday table cloth.
Welcome to my world.
