Your Wedding’s Missing Something…

Wedding season is in full bloom with brides and their planning committees hard at work making sure their celebration is a special, one-of-a-kind event that guests will remember and those who fail to attend will regret to miss.

Though primarily used in agricultural and industrial operations, burlap can give your wedding the rustic but chic style you’ve been looking for. We’ve already had experience in making burlap placements, table runners, and name banners.

Before It’s Too Late

Do you have a room you’ve been planning to repaint? Ugly wallpaper that needs covering up? When considering your next paint job, take advice from professional painters: use a drop cloth.

But what kind of drop cloth?  Pro painters suggest using one of these four cover materials to spread over your floor and furniture to protect them from paint damage.

Canvas – This might be the most popular option when painting thanks the the material’s thick and durable qualities. These covers will last through more than one paint job, so after you’re done, you can roll and store. Spill a bit of paint? Don’t worry, canvas will absorb the paint so it doesn’t stain your floors.

Plastic – Plastic covers offer a variety of thicknesses from .4 mill to 4 mill. The most common thickness of a plastic drop cloth for painting is about .6-1 mill, or approximately the thickness of a trash bag. These cloths are best for covering furniture and cabinetry, and are also popularly used to protect lawns and landscaping in outdoor painting. Unlike canvas cloths, plastic is not absorptive so paint spills will run.

Paper/Poly – These drop cloths combine both paper and poly materials for an inexpensive and disposable covering option. While adding some protection against slipping, these cloths absorb paint drips and protect your furniture and floors. Helpful tip: these cloths rip easily, so try taping down the edges to prevent unnecessary damage.

Paper – Used in smaller, indoor jobs, paper drop cloths are a cost conscious option for covering windows and furniture. These cloths rip easily, so best not to used them to protect floors in larger paint jobs. After you’re finished, just fold up the used paper and throw it away.

More helpful tips for using drop cloths:

  • Tape edges of plastic and paper cloths down to prevent sliding
  • Use quick-release painter’s tape so you can safely paint down to your floor line
  • Make sure to sweep and/0r vacuum floors before laying cloths down so dirt and debris stuck underneath don’t cause damage
  • When covering furniture, use masking tape to secure cloths

Burlap Canvas Art

One of our most popular fabrics is burlap. Originally from the Middle East, burlap is a durable and rugged material made from Jute. It’s used for just about anything, ranging from landscaping fabrics to bag coffee beans. Due to its natural look and durability, burlap canvas has also become popular for many DIY and ‘craftsy’ types.  One interesting use is to have burlap canvas as the base for your painting.  The fabric creates a unique, cost effective material for creating artwork for your home, office, or as a great holiday gift!

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to make burlap canvas art:

Using a pre-made canvas

    1. Buy a canvas
    2. Wrap the burlap around the entire canvas

  1. Cut the excess burlap
  2. Staple the burlap along the edges of the canvas frame

Using a cardboard box

  1. Get a cardboard box of a size you choose
  2. Cut the so the box is about 1 inch deep
  3. Wrap the burlap around the entire box
  4. Cut the excess burlap
  5. Use a hot glue gun to attach the burlap to the box
    a. Make sure to pull the burlap tight, making it as smooth as possible
    b. Fold and glue the corners neatly

Now for the creative part. Stencil or draw a silhouette of your design onto the burlap. If you’re using a stencil, make sure to have some type of adhesive to make it stick to the burlap – you don’t want the stencil to move around while you paint! A foam brush and acrylic paint tend to work best on burlap canvas. When using these supplies, a ‘blotting’ technique works best to allow paint to soak into the canvas.
