Vintage Tablecloth to Wall Art
Vintage 1950s treasures can add a touch of nostalgia to a room. With my 1950s California Missions tablecloth I created a piece of wall art for our kitchen/dining room.
The tablecloth measures 32” x 36” and framing it was cost prohibitive. This called for a trip to the Habitat for Humanity Restore. I found an Anderson window the perfect size.
After removing some hardware, puttying in some holes, sanding and painting, the window was ready to become my frame. I simply stapled the tablecloth to the inside of the window.
Then I stapled a piece of Luann plywood to the back. Luann Plywood is about ¼” thick and is used for craft projects that need a thin wood.
Most circa 1950 kitchen collections, such as Fiesta ware dishes are in the primary color tones, especially red and yellow. Since these are colors I use in my kitchen this piece of Americana fits perfectly in the décor.
