From Bedtime to Sink Skirt: How to Upcycle Vintage Sheets

At an estate sale in Pasadena a year or two back, I was fortunate to find some brightly colored sheets in impeccable shape. When I moved into my latest apartment I planned on transforming those sheets into a shower curtain for our claw-foot tub.

Line dried vintage sheets.

Well, practicality took over and we opted not to do that. Instead, we shifted our focus to the naked area beneath the small sink in the bathroom. It had recently been transformed into a storage area for our emergency water and was now home to two 5-gallon jugs. Not the prettiest sight while you’re sitting on the porcelain throne.

My dear friend’s Mom was kind enough to lend her sewing skills one summer afternoon and created a lovely skirt to cover my jugs. I am much happier with the view.

The finished product, a dandy sink skirt.

Now on to create something with the striped sheet!
