Chloe has been asking to have a lemonade stand of her very own all Summer long now. And what kind of mother would I be if I didn’t encourage the little entrepreneur in her?!!
So when I received a gorgeous burlap tablecloth from my sponsor Burlap Fabric, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it…
You all know my love for gingham, I just can’t seem to get enough of it lately.
I loved the idea of taking a simple burlap tablecloth, and giving it an offbeat kick. Burlap is such a fantastic fabric to work with, we have all seen the beautiful photos of burlap weddings. Lace, ivory & burlap are such a fabulous combination. So I was really intrigued to see how I could take that same concept and give it a new dimension…
I absolutely love how it turned out!
And that’s it! Be sure not to slop the paint on – you want to remember that gingham is supposed to be lighter in some squares, and darker in the squares that meet. So just a light brush of the paint is perfect.
As for the lemonade stand?
The girls absolutely loved it, and got 4 whole customers!!!
Not bad considering only 5 drove by.
But to the girls, those 4 customers meant the world to them. The best few dollars ever earned.
