Who do not have stepped on never an Ikea, that raise your hand. I am that they will be running the Kiosk when the catalog comes out and always have it at hand to go painting and repainting the things that I like. And then plays the excursion to Bilbao (we have no Ikea in Santander) and the consequent bobbin lace to put everything in the car… I am sure that more than one sound.
In one of these excursions at Ikea, I came the bright idea of buying these Japanese panels to the window of the living room. Very list me, Yes, because the damn window has a door to exit to the terrace. So Japanese panels, tururú. As he had also lost the ticket and nobody wanted them, a lot of months have passed on the bottom of the storage room until it happened to me the way to recycle them. As I am very apañadita, I used them to make a few tablecloths that have been the cool sea. Here you have the “tutorial” or whatever it is this, if you served as inspiration.
Who has never been in an Ikea shop ? Personally, I’m the kind of person who run towards the news-stand when I hear that new catalog is available. And I leave it in the living-room, always near in case I need to paint it. Afterwards, we go on a little trip to Bilbao (there is not an Ikea shop in Santander) and we have to make bobbin lace to put it into the car … I’m sure that I’m not the only one.
One day, in one of this little trips to Ikea, I had the brilliant idea of buying this panel curtains for the living room’s window. A really good idea, considering that the mentioned window has a door to go to the terrace. So it was impossible to use the panel curtains. Apart from that, I had lost the bill so I had abandoned them in the lumber-room until the day I discovered how to recycle them. I have used the panel curtains to make nice recycled tablecloths. I leave here a kind of “tutorial”, in case it is useful as inspiration.
Más fácil, imposible. Tan sólo hay que decidir la anchura y largura que queremos que tenga el mantel, en función de la mesa en que lo vayamos a usar. Yo los uso para la mesa de la terraza (la de la foto) así que escogí una largura de 150 cm.
It is veeeeery easy. First of all, you have to decide the width and the length of the tablecloth, depending on the size of the table where you are going to use it. I use the manteles on the table you can see in the photo, so I cut to 150cm long piece.
60 cm of width of the Japanese panel seemed too many for the tablecloth, so I removed 8 cm on each side to allow a width of 44 cm. To do this, so just measure, draw a line with the pencil, and cut with the scissors edge zig-zag.
The panel curtain is 60 cm wide, which is too much for my table, so I cut 8cm in each side. To do that you only have to measure, paint line and cut the fabric using the zig-zag scissors.
And volila, here are the recycled tablecloths finished!
And voila, here you have the finished recycled manteles!
Today I present to you the more folk of the princesses. He is wearing a dress from red felt, polka dots and white tulle fabric. At the waist, I’ve put an account of white Swarovsky Crystal and the headdress consists of a red feather and a mother of Pearl button. If instead of headdress we put a flower in the hair, already we send it directly to the April fair, right?
I’m going to show you today the most “folkloric” Princess. She wears a dress made of red felt, fabric and white spotted tulle. I have used white Swarovski glass for the waist and the headdress is made with a red feather and a nacre button.
