Any DIY projects you regret starting/doing?
Oh how I’m kinda kicking myself….
So I had this grand idea of saving money on linens. I bought a bag of like 300 napkins, 20 tablecloths, various doilies, table runners from a guy on craigslist for $50. Problem is they are all too short for my tables (mid length) and varied embroidered designs (mostly white). I’ve enjoyed the puzzle of figuring out how to make them all work for my tables. Its just that with the cost of painting some, stenciling some – then sewing add’l fabric around the bottom – I would only save ~$100. Not sure if its worth it.
TOO Late! Because, I’ve already bought some spray paint to begin. They are actually coming out nice, but I could’ve just stopped being cheap and set aside the money to buy real tablecloths.
Even the guys at the craft store were perplexed as to why I wanted to go down this path. They warned me it would be too much work.
Just needed to rant about how complicated I make things sometimes. Thanks for listening
