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.
