Designer Plastic

Every Sunday we gather as a family to eat in our dining room. It has been a tradition since we moved into this home. We set out "Sunday" dishes, glasses and even unique-to-Sunday salt and pepper shakers. We light a candle or two and enjoy having a delicious dinner, usually cooked by my hubby. And we always have a tablecloth. . .well, not a reeeal tableCLOTH. We can be a sloppy bunch and I don't want to spend my week soaking and removing stains from a real tablecloth so I resort to the plastic variety. But it can be difficult to find a faux tablecloth that doesn't look too country or too grandma-y. So imagine my delight when I found these beautiful covers at Big Lots the other day. Look! Lovely colors and designer patterns. I had to stock up on all they had in my difficult to find table size. I couldn't pass up such pretty, practical, and priced-to-please plastic!

Hi Joy-
Last night I saw an infommercial for paint zoom. Have you heard of it? It is a paint gun for $99. I wondered if you've ever tried it and could recommend it.

I like the colors you picked for your table clothes. It is fun to dress up your table ocassionally.

Hi Laurel!
I've never heard of the Paint Zoom. I looked on their site and it seems like one of those "too good to be true" items. In my experience you usually get what you pay for. A good tool is always worth a good investment price. I would recommend that you do a little research, read forums like this:

before you buy, and beware of spam ads! Good Luck.
P.S.
If the makers of the Paint Zoom would like me (or Laurel) to give an honest opinion, they're welcome to send a free one for testing purposes. ;~)
