That being said, I find that home dec projects are the ones that save me the most money, and I really, really, do like saving money.
Last Christmas, we got my kids a KidKraft table (affiliate link). The table is used more than any other table in our home (even our kitchen table). My kids eat lunch and snack there, they craft there, and the table serves as an overflow when our regular table is occupied with dinner guests.

It's sturdy enough that my kid's grandparents often join them for dinner at their table (instead of sitting with boring old us!) We can tell the table is going to be used and enjoyed for far longer than we had anticipated, and I wanted to protect the top a bit better.
This project was a quicky, and completely inspired by Jess of CINO. Head on over to her blog for her Fitted Tablecloth Tutorial.
I followed her tutorial to the letter for the tablecloth part-- except that I used a cheap flannel backed vinyl instead of oilcloth.
A table cloth, and it cost me just under 3 dollars out of pocket! I just need to make another one for our 'big' table. I'm keeping my eye out for an inexpensive vinyl. If you know of any; drop me a line!
See you back here tomorrow for another fun home dec project!
