My Ruffled Table Cloth

I am in love with it.

My inspiration for this came from.

It actually is a bed skirt I purchased the same one Courtney in my inspiration used on her's, but I actually found it in a twin size rather then hers being a king. It's really odd but my dining table is like the exact same size as a twin size bed, which made this work out great.


My little girly Lacie.



 I feel the table cloth goes very nicely with the rest of the style of my home.


Learn from my mistakes....
One thing that didn't even cross my mind before the bed skirt /table cloth came in the mail was that bed skirts are only three sided, It's not a huge deal because you hardly see this side the way my table is placed in my home but I do plan on buying another and sewing on a 4th side here.
(Bella & Lacie always want to be in the pictures lol)


 I love these candle stick holders I found at Goodwill last week.


 I paid 29 dollars for the bed skirt/ table cloth plus 8 dollars shipping. I have already ordered another in a king this time I am actually going to use it on my bed. I can't wait for it to come and I'll be sure to do a post to share it with you all.




 See you next time!

  3. Love this! I bought the same (at least it looks like it) bedskirt from Overstock in a king size in both white and cream. They look amazing on my bed! I may have to try to get a few more so I can have a ruffled tablecloth. Your house looks amazing!

  4. Hello, I got the same inspiration! What I did with mine, is I removed the top layer, as it was too shiny & silky for my taste, and sewn a white linen tablecloth in it's place, and made it more of an oval shape, like my table is ~ I'll be doing a post with pics of it soon, and hope you will stop by to see it ~ would love to have to come for a "visit" :)

    Warmest, Brenda

  11. Hi, I was inspired by the same blog and bought the bedskirt in a king. Its pretty sort of drops to the floor on the edges but the chairs kind of take away from it. I didnt really know what size to order so can you tell me what the measurements of your table are. I might get a twin so the ruffles will come up to the edges.

  22. Your table looks like it is going to a prom or a debutante ball. What FUN!

  23. Love this idea....I saw it first in Romantic Homes about three years ago and have wanted to do it...the one unruffled side is what stopped me as my table is round...I think your idea of two bed skirts will solve the problem!

    Your home is lovely!

  24. I once used a bedskirt on a dressing table. Looked great. Because it was smaller the 3 sided thing wasn't an issue.

  25. Love this idea. Your home should be in a magazine, everything is so beautiful. You certainly do have a talent for decorating. Hugs...Lu

  26. Such a clever use of a bed skirt! I love your style--everything is so beautiful! And the picture of Lacie at the table is precious.

  27. First time visitor to your blog! I love your home and all your ideas, especially using a bed skirt as a table cloth! They make 4 sided bed skirts for day beds. I have an eyelet one on my daybed that I got from bedbathandbeyond.com and it has 4 sides. Just thought and others you might want to know! Kathy

  28. It seams to be perfect, except for the seams. If you can, avoid unsightly tabletop seams in your table linens unless it is part of the tablecloth’s overall design and function.

  29. Love the tablecloth, would you mind sharing how many bed skirts you purchased to make it? Thanks a bunch!!!
