Thrifty Thursday #95 + a Tablescape

Hi! It's Thrifty Thursday! I am your host, Leigh. Thank you so much for stopping by and additional thanks to those who also participate in Thrifty Thursday! I am most delighted to have you join in..for it's YOU who makes it a "show and tell party". I also participate in Tablescape Thursday the host of that fun carnival is the Hostess with the Mostess...Susan of Between Naps on the Backporch. That's no lie or exaggeration, each week I visit Susan's porch and just long to be a guest at any of her tablescapes...especially those held on the porch.

This week's Thrifty Thurday comes by way of my friend Diva. As mentioned in my Monday post, on Christmas Eve my family paid a visit to our friends the Dassau's. My friend Diva shared with me a thrifty project she recently did. She recovered her dining room chairs in a shower curtain! She found the shower

curtain at Ross for $8.00. She loved the fabric and the colors and design.

I dont know why the picture appears to have two differnt colors, they are both the same color, same fabric.

However, there was only one shower curtain, enough to cover two chairs, but not enough to cover four.She actually found a neutral tabelcloth that was pretreated with stain guard and covered the remaining chairs, plus some barstolls in that fabric. Diva has two young children and can a test to the fact that the guard works.

I love this idea! A shower curtain! Now that's thinking out of the box!

Now onto Tablescape Thursday...

 All dishes came from AT HOME, Homewood.

Thanks to all of you for stopping by and participating in today's Thrifty Thursday.

I like thinking outside the box. Not only does it provide unique decorating ideas, but it usually does so for a lot less money.

Using shower curtains to recover the chairs is such a great idea. Inexpensive and easy to clean up! I'm due for an update in my dining room so I appreciate this post VERY much!

Love ya Leigh!
