Placemat Palooza!

Well I've found yet another couple of uses for placemats other than dining.  I was shopping at HomeGoods last week and came across these vinyl placemats.  I thought they were adorable and reminded me of the Moroccan  lanterns and vases that I see everywhere these days.

By the time I drove home, I knew exactly what to do with them.  I had 3 glass cylinder vases and thought by adding the placemats I would get the look for less.

I simply cut the placemats to fit and hot glued at the seem. I might use the strips that are left over to cover votives.

This is a daily double....I've had this tray table for years! I got it at a garage sale and thought it was so cute, but just needed a little love.  This was saved during the last lose it or use it party.

I painted it and lined the tray with the last placemat.  I keep this tucked behind the chair and pull it out for company. It gives them a great place to set a drink and some munchies without having to lean forward to reach the ottoman.

Giving myself a use it or lose it date seems to be lighting a fire under my butt!

Join the party
