Like BooMama I had high hopes to show you some before and after photos from the big project at our house…the basement. But alas we aren’t anywhere near the “after” stage yet so I defaulted to this smaller project that I’m working on.
These are some of my many tablecloths. This type of storage makes them hard to get to, to see, and to stay wrinkle free. I’ve been wanting to change this for a long time.
Now this is much better. I can see them more easily and they don’t get wrinkled. I’m still in process. I have lots of tablecloths. The next stage to this process is to arrange them in sizes. My table has 6 leaves so I use several different tablecloth sizes depending on how many people will be seated around my table.
I’m going to leave you with a photo of the stage our basement is in even though I’m not the one working on this project. My involvement includes feeding the crew and keeping them hydrated. Once in a while I have to make a mad dash to the Home Depot for a needed item. :0)

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I posted on my blog from 2007-2015 hostage and replaced them with big black and grey boxes with threats. So discouraging…as I’m slowly trying to clean up thousands of posts!

I can hardly wait to see your finished remodel. This is exciting. Blessings to you!
What a smart idea to hang the linens! I would have never thought to do that.
I’ve gotten such great ideas from this whole Before and After party!
Ooh! (I have a very limited vocabulary as I’m sure you know by now). The basement is coming along nicely. What is the end result going to be? I love how you’ve hung all your tablecloths. Functional…easy to pick from…and visually appealing. What a great idea!
Have fun with your family Ellen B.,

You’ll have to show us the “after” shot no matter when it’s done! What a smart idea for the linens.
I totally flaked out on the Before and After thing when it didn’t happen in July.
Oh my goodness, that is the exact way I store my tablecloths. I’m more organized than I realized!
Hope your time at home is extra special!
What a great idea to hang the tablecloths instead of having them folded in the closet! I hope you have loads of fun at home this weekend.
OK…what jumped out at me was “SIX leaves” for your table!? Now, that’s a big table……but you do have a BIG family 🙂
What a great idea–hanging the tablecloths instead of having them folded and sliding off each other and being such a mess (my house). We got a square table that seats 8, and while it seemed like a great idea at the time, none of our tablecloths fit it now. Seeing yours makes me feel all cozy inside and I want to find something to make mine work! Thanks for the inspiration and good luck on your basement. Won’t that be fun when it’s finished!
Great way to hang tablecloths! I’ve never thought of that before. I need to try that!
