The Lady Horologist

Inspiration from Vintage styles.


Finding the right materials for your tables can be just as easy or tricky as finding displays. It all depends on what you can envision using. Looking at just tablecloths can produce exactly what you need most of the time, however when it came to finding materials that enhanced our vintage look we discovered materials other than tablecloths. For example the velvet is a bed cover that came with two pillow cases. We use the pillow cases to cover boxes to add dimension on our tables. Or you may find you find the perfect fabrics but the colors won’t due. I tea stained a white lace tablecloth to be a beautiful creamy color that matched our bed cover far better than when it was white! Of course we had to have a bit of color to move away from being too boring. Sometimes thinking outside the box a little can go a long way!
