Recycle Pillow Shams Into Place Mats
What you need: Boudoir-size pillow shams (usually 12 by 16 inches).
What you do: Nothing―the simplest project ever. Boudoir shams will cover much of the table when used this way, so you can skip a tablecloth.
Also works with: Napkins and dish towels. For a French-bistro effect, use a king-size sham draped across the table, with place settings at opposite ends of the sham.
