I don’t think I’ve seen the tarp at Ikea in Australia, but that definitely sounds like a bargain, I might have to check it out. Thanks for the tip!

Something vaguely similar: we bought a self healing huge mat from Michaels (actually Fiance bought it and I was annoyed because I thought we’d never use it and it took up so much space)…and it has been our lifesaver from a DIY perspective. It protects the surface of the furniture we use, has inches and centimeters marked out…and in general has seen so much use!

An alternative to the IKEA tarp is a vinyl tablecloth.  That’s what I use all the time for paint or gluing projects. Also, as pp stated,  the self-healing sewing, quilting mats are great for any cutting.  Also a rotary cutter and flat ruler to use on the mat to make staight cuts.
