Oilcloth Giveaway!

I'm giving away two yards of this gorgeous oilcloth! This is one of my favorite patterns, so don't expect to see it on another giveaway any time soon. ;) I use this as a tablecloth under white dishes with orange napkins. I also have a lampshade made out of it, and I suspect that it will be covering some of my patio furniture. It wipes clean, and stays looking shiny and fresh! If you have never used oilcloth, you really don't know what you are missing.

To enter the giveaway, comment below answering the question "what is your biggest challenge in decorating your own home?". The winner will be announced on Friday!

My biggest challenge in decorating my own home is probably that I hate painting with a passion. We just bought a house and the kitchen has about 5 mismatched colors of atrocious paint all over it, but I'm waiting till my husband has time to do something about it....

My biggest challenge is working with awesome open spaces, but limited wall space to put furniture against (several rooms have two walls due to opening to other rooms and built in closets).

Time and money.
I love your blog by the way-very inspiring!

My biggest challenge in decorating my home is an inborn lack of good taste. Save me from kitsch!

My biggest challenge is the 4 small kiddos (3 of them boys) that live here. Getting the time to start and finish a project happens on very rare occasions. Another would be money. But if I felt like I had more time I would be more willing to save for things like decorating.

Thanks! I read your blog often and have decided I need pickled floors and stairs with tiled backs! :)

Besides the time and money issue - lack of good local shopping.

I'm pretty sure that oilcloth would look great in my kitchen :-)

My biggest challenge is that we don't have a home--just an apartment, so we are quite limited in what we can change. If we had our own house, then the challenge would be $$$!

My biggest decorating challenge is vision, I know what I like when I look at it in magazines but have a hard time seeing how it would work in my own house!
Adorable oilcloth. :)

My biggest challenge is finding the items I'm looking for to put in my space at a cost I can afford.

My biggest decorating challenge is the shabby-chic style I cultivated as a single women is despised by my husband!
Soon after we were married I bid adieu to my white dressers with pastel glass knobs, the pedestal table with so much potential, and yellow flamingo curtains--not that I was successfully channeling Rachael Ashwell by any means . . . but I tried!
So my challenge born of challenge has been to try incorporate my husband's European elk mount and antelope bust into some sort of distant relative of the Ralph Lauren Country collection, while avoiding having that relative be the toothless cousin play ingthe spoons.

My biggest challenge is that our home is all vertical - tiny rooms with slanted walls, no doors, and connected by a spiral staircase. :) But if we weren't living in a converted water tower... I think I'd echo Christine--knowing what I like when I see it but not being sure how to create that look in my own spaces.

Where to start! I have a clean white sleight and from the entry way you can see part of the stairway, kitchen, and frontroom. I jumped in and painted the entry bright red and the frontroom golden brown (yuck!) Limited budget is an issue, but not an excuse. I just want it to look like I did SOMETHING nice to my home!!! :) Nice blog... I like!

Love this oilcloth!

My biggest challenge is the hot water heater AND oil furnace smack in one corner of the dining room. Right now, there are white IKEA curtains that mimic our white paneling hanging in a semi-circle round it. Little kids ask though when they come, "Is that your shower?" :) I counterbalance by having amazing curtains on the window opposite!

Moriah said...

Ooh! I love oilcloth and I love your blog. :)

My biggest challenge right now is that we are renting, most of our belongings are in storage and what little we do have unpacked doesn't neatly contain our belongings (lack of dressers, couch, etc.). I'm looking forward to us getting into a house again and being able to paint and unpack and organize soon!

Blessings,

My biggest challenge is that I really have no clue at where to begin. That is misleading; you have helped me figure color, which is aking my husband happy. But, I don't know what to do next!

My biggest challenge is indecision! I get afraid to take the time to do something only to discover that I made the wrong choice of what to put up or where to put it.
