Happy Wednesday Friends! Do you have an awkward storage space that always looks cluttered even after you have organized it? I have a simple solution--add a tablecloth curtain!
Over the years, I've added curtains to remedy various storage issues so I don't know why it hadn't occurred to me before for my laundry room. Once I had my Ah-hah moment, I decided to use one of my vintage tablecloths and simply chose the one that fit the shelves best. Tablecloths make great no-sew curtains--the edges are finished and you can just clip on curtain rings! First I painted my storage shelves and allowed them to dry overnight before returning the organized storage items. Then I used an inexpensive spring tension rod to fit at the top of the highest shelf. Once the curtain rings were clipped on, the
tablecloth curtain was ready to hang. No more cluttered looking shelves!
I had seen Rust-Oleum countertop paint and was curious, so when I was buying my wall paint and saw there was a comparable shade, I decided to try it. I do love the color, Light Ash which was true to the color chart on the can. Would I use it again? Probably not! Here's why: First, though I followed the directions explicitly, it was a pain to work with. Fortunately, the appearance did improve with each coat except for the fact that it is supposed to be a satin finish and the finished result is a very high gloss! It works in this room, but I would have hated it anywhere else. Anyway, that's my two cents--lesson learned!
I would love to hear from anyone else who painted countertops!
