Colonial Floor Cloth

Well after much thought about creating my own colonial floor cloth I finally got busy doing it last weekend. I didn't take any pictures as I just wanted to get it completed b/c it caused my house to be upside down for a while.

Country Sampler has the DIY colonial Floor Cloth created by Janice from Stairway to Home instructions on their website & also Debra from Black Creek Colonial has created one herself. And I totally agree with those Ladies about them not being the easiest. It was fun though when the project was completed and now I can sit and look at it knowing that I created it all on my own. I will love it once we have the carpet ripped out and hard wood put down that I am hoping happens with in the next couple of months.

So take a look at my newest creation! I even think I might try to make a runner for my hallway eventually.

So do you all have snow in your neck of the woods??? We got hit twice this weekend with a blast but not a big one. And tomorrow it's suppose to be a high of 8 degree's so I know it will be gone with the rain that comes. I am enjoying the winter as I don't like the cold and we haven't had much cold weather!

Ground Hog day is on Thursday so lets hope there is only 6 weeks until Spring!!! And hopefully this Spring is a good one unlike last year but winter hasn't felt near as long as last year's did!!!

I am looking forward to getting outside and into my flower beds and seeing all the beautiful spring flowers pop up!

Have a great day everyone!



  1. Lynnly it turned out gorgeous~ I can remember I had old one's in our bedrooms when we moved in~ oh, my they were so old & brittle they just crumble, but the designs were so pretty~ love yours~ enjoy it~

  2. I love the floor clothe. I have always wanted to do one of these. Yours is beautiful. We have sunshine and upper 50's here today in Kentucky. We have had very little snow and a super mild winter. I would love to see a good snow before winter ends. Everything around here is starting to bud and shoot out of the ground. Blessings!

  3. The floor cloth turned out wonderfully.They are so expensive so worth the trouble.We've had a mild winter too.I just would like one big snow storm before spring though.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  4. The floor cloth looks great! They do take a lot of work, I've been wanting to make some more but just haven't had the time.

    Also, I've been meaning to get back with you about prim shops in the area you're going to be visiting. I'm not from that side of the state so I don't really know of any in that area. However, I'll keep my ears open and if I hear of anything I'll let you know.

    Take Care,

  5. Wow that came out beautiful! I saw that tutorial and wondered how difficult it would be. great work

  6. Hi, Lynnly ~
    I saw your blog on Nadine's blog My Primitive Heart. I am following your blog now, I like
    it very much!
    The floorcloth is beautiful. I made one about 30 years ago in a class and I wish I still had it. I have no idea what happened to it!
    I think they are so perfect for today's decorating in a colonial home.

  7. Looks great and it fits that spot perfectly!

  8. Hi, Lynnly,
    I just joined your blog, I know you from the Christmas Card exchange.
    What a great job you did on the floorcloth, I should give that a try. I love floorcloths but they are SO expensive! Enjoy your snow, we aren't getting any this winter, it hardly is winter at all in Ohio.

  9. I really like your floor cloth. Have had the canvas since Oct to do one and it hasn't happened yet. Hopefully soon. Enjoyed my visit.

  10. I love your floor cloth! It looks great! I would love to be able to do something like that :) We got that blast of snow over the weekend too, we still have snow here but it's melting some with the warmer temps. Let's hope the ground hog has the answer we are hoping for! I am with you on not liking the cold weather, I hate driving in the snow and the cold bothers my arthritis...bring on Spring!!
    Hugs, Trish

  11. Great job on the floor cloth. I've thought about doing one for my kitchen. Thanks for sharing it! Terry:) p.s. Thanks for following BHP!

  12. Hi Lynnly - it is so nice to find fellow Canadians who love primitives! I am reaching out to anyone who is interested in "A Primitive Place" magazine. I am offering the magazine for 13.50 shipped in Canada. You may already have place where you can find it - I know that it isn't available as a subscription in Canada. Have a great day!
