Anthropologie Inspired DIY Napkins
You probably already know I that love cloth napkins. I love that they are reusable, machine washable and they dress up your table. Win, win, right? So when I stumbled upon the sun stripe napkins at Anthropologie I was in love. They have such a simple linear pattern that will easily go from summer to fall. At $12 each, I just couldn’t justify the price tag. So I stopped at TJ Maxx and picked up a set of four cotton, linen looking napkins for $5. I used some Martha Stewart craft paint and a 1/4″ angled paint brush and painted the simple pattern.
Instant Anthro style for only $5! Now that’s definitely a win!
Saw these on your IG feed. Awesome job! :)

LOVE! I really need to get (or rather, MAKE) some cloth napkins–we usually just pilfer Dunkin Donuts when we get coffee, haha. Time to get classier. Very nicely done!
Ooh love this idea and love your blog!
Dress Up Your Table with Painted Pattern Napkins
[…] Sarah of Sarah Hearts has a thing for cloth napkins. Not only are they a great way to dress up your table, but they are machine washable and reusable. What’s not to love? Sarah was inspired to jazz up a set of plain cotton napkins with a simple pattern using just some craft paint and a brush. Talk about easy! Sarah writes, “Instant Anthro style for only $5! Now that’s definitely a win!” […]
These are so cute! Do they launder well? I’ve been wanting to do this with a stencil, but was afraid the craft paint would come out in the wash. They’re wonderful!
Love these Sarah! Great colours aren’t they :)

How do these hold up to washing? Does the acrylic paint wash out? Really like the idea. Started painting some for myself and have been asked, “How are you going to keep the paint from washing out?”
Hi Chris! I found that when I use the Martha Stewart craft paint it holds up really well! I always put them in the dryer, on high, for a cycle once the paint is dry. This sets the paint and makes them washable.
