A Darling Picnic Bench and Ruffle Table Cloth

Hello Friends!

isn't kid furniture the cutest?
i always find myself gravitating towards it when shopping at flea markets and antique shops. Who can resist buying an adorable little picnic bench, especially with two little girls? i thought it would be perfect for the girls bedroom and envisioned us using it to read, color and have tea parties.

Ever since i saw a picture of a ruffle fitted table cloth i wanted to try and make one for my own dining room table. it was much easier starting off by trying to make one for the girls picnic table first.
Did you know that Ikea is selling linen for $5.99 a yard? i was ecstatic to find that out and thought i would share it with you. They have a pretty grey that i'm hoping they get back in stock soon!
*please note that the table cloth has not been washed to get that nice raw edge and no strings or threads have been cut yet.

I'd like to say thank you to a couple of fabulous ladies for featuring me on their blogs..
Thank you so much ladies!

Anyway, thanks for the tip about Ikea's fabric-that is a fantastic deal!! :)
