Thrifty Polka Dot Card Table Set

Thrifty Polka Dot Card Table Set

1 Comment

Using just a shower curtain and Krylon spray paint, you can create your very own Thrifty Polka Dot Card Table Set. Kelli thrifted this set for just $5 and saw potential in these pieces to make something new. Now she has a great table set that is perfect for holidays. The best part about this DIY project is that the shower curtain repels stains and spills so this is a great table for kids.

This is a marvelous idea. It's simple, very easy to do and minimal in cost. You can find the shower curtain at the dollar store. It's a wonderful way to give the little ones a place to do their own thing without worry of staining a table top. A patio table would benefit from it also.
