Show and Tell: Tablecloth trick gets center stage

How darn cute is this kitchen?! You may remember it from Elyse's oilcloth covered kitchen tablecloth from our first Show and Tell features. Well now you can see her practically pretty table and more of her lovely home in this months Fresh Cottage magazine. I can't wait to hit Barnes and Noble today to pick up my copy.  

She transformed her table with the red polka dot oilcloth in about 15 minutes with nothing more than a pair of scissor and a staple gun. Actually, she just uses blue painters tape. What really surprised me is that she feeds two boys at this table and painters tape kept the oilcloth in place for about a year. Totally cool!
Elyse is a "stay-at-home mom, writer, communications consultant, tinkerer, blogger and online shop owner." Check out the Tinkered Treasured blog and shop.
Elyse's done it again, this time she's got a bit bolder with the dots on red print. The sign intertwined on the fence says it all! LOVE!
