Drop Cloth Dreamy!

As much as I LOVE using vintage fabrics and grain sacks,
today's economy has forced most of us 
to pull back in our spending.

That doesn't mean we can't have beautiful rooms.

Last year as I was opening up a new retail booth,
I was looking for something inexpensive, but pretty,
to cover the peg board walls.

I wanted something crisp and neutral 
to give a soft backdrop to the rustic pieces I was using.
Rustic, meaning chicken nesters and
 barn, potting racks.

I was walking through Wal Mart and came across
a large display of PAINTER'S Drop Cloths.
At $20 per large cloth, I thought it would be the perfect look.



I really liked the durability and weight of the canvas.

I thought I had come up with a brilliant idea!
Little did I know that everyone else in blog land
had the same idea!

It's versatility is limitless!

I found so many wonderful projects,
 I had to whittle them down for this post.

I hope you enjoy the inspiration!
