Kitchen Cleaning Motivation: a Pretty Tablecloth


I've been wanting a tablecloth for a while.  The ones in the stores were too modern or too grandma or too fancy.  When I saw this 2 metre piece of fabric at Ikea for 50% off, I immediately envisioned a tablecloth.  I've had it on the table for most of this past week, but just got around to hemming it yesterday.  I have just enough leftover fabric to either make 4 napkins or an apron.  I will probably do the apron.

There's something about having a pretty table that makes me want to scrub the rest of the kitchen to match!  The first day I had it on there, I cleared off and reorganised the counters, shined my sink a la flylady, and even scrubbed the half-bathroom.  Juliana had a blast cleaning with me, with her squirt bottle of water.  Even Nico tried to help.
