I am still stuck on the way this table looks, wrapped like a present in cheery, durable oilcloth. Turns out, oilcloth can be a little pricey so I thought I'd see if Target had anything to play around with to try out a similar look. Good ol' Target: vinyl tablecloths for $5.99.
I trimmed the oblong tablecloth and wrapped my table top, securing the sides underneath with masking tape. What do you think?

It's fun to see how one idea can spark another. This happens all the time with blogging and it's just the coolest!
