Love the contrast of the plain canvas fabric with pretty ruffles on this pillow from Ink Blots and Polka Dots.

Think these roman blinds from Simple Vintage Charm are raw linen? Guess again--drop cloths! These outdoor curtains from Our Home Away from Home are a lot what I plan on doing for my new sukkah next year. This "after" slipped covered ottoman from Annabellea looks so much better with a custom drop cloth cover. 

 How cute is this tent from Lowe's Creative Ideas? They show you how to make it here.
