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.
