I Love My Modern June Oilcloth Tablecloth!

Modern June

I love Mexican oilcloth — I think the brightly-colored patterns are fun with our eclectic decor. We had two funky floral-print tablecloths that we alternated on our kitchen table for a long time and I found them addictively functional. Perfect for arts and crafts, food prep, Play-Doh, whatever, and a breeze to clean.

But I got tired of the flowers. Time for an update,  but I definitely wanted to keep the hardworking oilcloth.

We found Modern June — “cool stuff for the hip housewife!” — on Etsy, fabulous home of all things handmade. She makes oilcloth tablecloths, placemats, splat mats, totes, aprons, party banners, and more. After much debate, with Modern June sweetly sending us additional images and consulting on trim color, we finally settled on a crisp, clean white with bright lime polka dots and a dark chocolate trim.

Here it is in action.

Roll it out, cut it out, repeat.

The perfect tablecloth if you have little kids, or, really, in general. Spilled red wine? Squashed blueberries? An errant purple crayon stroke? Wipe it up, no problem.

    What does it feel like? Does it feel like Vinyl? It looks heavier than Vinyl.

      Hi Beth,
      Oil cloth is heavier than vinyl and has a nicer feeling (a little less tacky) than vinyl. It is also shinier and cleans up easier, to my mind.
      Thanks for reading!
