Do you have an old outdated kitchen table? Don't toss it to the curb. With just a little paint, you can revamp your old kitchen table. With just some chalk paint, distressing and wax, I transformed my boring outdated kitchen table into something cute and quaint.

That's a good question Stephanie. I haven't used my table too much yet, but the wax is the key
to protecting it. From what I understand, if you apply the wax correctly, it won't show wear and tear easily. I've heard of people using too much wax and their kids played with their toys on it and the wax ended up getting 'indented' which showed. But if you wax and buff properly, it sets the chalk paint and that should protect it.
Do you have curtains that you need to let down at night but want to have them open during the day? If your curtain rod is too hard to slide your curtains back and forth with like mine, these diy curtain tie backs are the perfect solution for holding your curtains open.
I was looking for curtains to add to my room and was hoping to find something with a 'linen' feel. Drop cloth is somewhat 'linen' like so I tried my hand at creating my own curtains from drop cloth. And bonus, no sewing was involved!

Rebecca, I don't think they would be too neutral for your room. You could also paint on the
drop cloth if you wanted to add some color (stripes or a stencil). Just an idea!
