Easy Decorating Idea

I love ideas that we can all use for unique design. From the Better Homes and Gardens July 2010 issue , an inexpensive rectangular tablecloth 60" x 90" was remade into a tailored skirt for an average size round end table.
Cut the short ends of the rectangle to your round table height plus about 1 inch for a seam. Add even more extra if you want the skirt to puddle on the floor.
From the center of the cloth, cut your circle 1" larger than the table top diameter.
Pin the skirt sides to the top and sew up. Any extra width can be box pleated or cut to fit at the top. See the magazine for complete details and give it a try. Great idea!
