Dress Up Your Table with Painted Pattern Napkins

Sarah of Sarah Hearts has a thing for cloth napkins. Not only are they a great way to dress up your table, but they are machine washable and reusable. What’s not to love? Sarah was inspired to jazz up a set of plain cotton napkins with a simple pattern using just some craft paint and a brush. Talk about easy! Sarah writes, “Instant Anthro style for only $5! Now that’s definitely a win!”

How to Paint a Duvet Cover

Over the past few days, I have shared a painted hand towel, painted pillow cover, and painted tablecloth. Why not throw a painted duvet cover into the lineup of fabulous fabric painting projects?!? Jackie of Teal & Lime contributing at 4 Men 1 Lady shares how she transformed a plain white duvet cover and sham by using fabric paint to give it a bold, graphic pattern. The result is just as beautiful as pricey bedding but for less than half the price!

Paint Stripes on a Fabric Tablecloth

I have another painted fabric project for you today. You know I am going to have you all painting fabric in no time! Ha! When it came time for a striped-themed project challenge, Leigh Anne of Your Homebased Mom already had a striped tablecloth in mind that she wanted to replicate. She grabbed a plain white tablecloth and a bottle of textile paint and got rolling. Here’s from Leigh Anne: “…it looks perfect on my patio table. Fun, festive and ready for a party. I think I need one in another color now.”

Monogram a Towel with Paint

When Charisa from Madtown Macs saw West Elm’s digitally monogrammed hand towels, she immediately loved them and swooped some up as gifts. Sadly, Charisa never got one for herself and knew it was time to change that. She easily created her own modern and bold monogrammed hand towel with a freezer paper stencil and fabric paint. I am all about painting some fabric!
