Diy Dining Room Table Pad

Make a draped table protector pad that blends in with the room’s decor. A well-crafted, wooden table can enhance the decor of your dining room, but it might not take long for the table to end up scratched and marred with heat stains if you leave it unprotected.With a little craftiness, you can protect the rich look of your dining room focal point against wear and tear. Whether you’re protecting a brand-new wooden table or a family heirloom, a table protector pad keeps your table safe and beautiful for many years to come. google_ad_channel = ‘6887971154’; google_ad_client = ‘pub-3235755782694080’; google_ad_output = ‘js’; google_max_num_ads = ‘1’; google_ad_type = ‘text’; google_image_size = ‘180×150’; google_feedback = ‘on’; google_skip = google_adnum; google_url = ‘bottom’; google_label_text = ‘Sponsored link’; Draped Table Protector Pad 1Measure the length and width of the tabletop and cut a piece of insulated fabric — fabric that is padded and quilted — with scissors according to this measurement. Alternatively, you can place a large sheet of pattern paper directly on the table and draw around the outer edge for a perfect fit. However, you’ll have to be careful to get a neat edge. Place the pattern paper on the insulation fabric and cut out the tabletop shape. 2Iron a tablecloth at a setting suited to its fabric. Lay the crease-free tablecloth out face down and center the insulated fabric on top. Pin the insulated fabric to the tablecloth. 3Sew a straight stitch all the way around the outer edge of the insulated fabric with an all-purpose thread that blends in with the tablecloth. 4Flip over the protector pad so the tablecloth is on top and arrange it on the table with the edges of the tablecloth draped over the edge of the table. Fitted Table Protector Pad 1Measure the length and the width of the table top, add 6 inches to each measurement and cut a piece of insulated fabric with scissors according to this measurement. 2Cut the two tablecloths to the same measurement. Iron both tablecloths at settings appropriate to their fabric to get rid of creases. 3Lay one tablecloth on a flat surface, place the insulation fabric on the tablecloth and smooth the second tablecloth on top to sandwich the insulation fabric in between. Any pattern on the tablecloths should be facing outward. Pin around the outer edges of the three layers to hold them together. 4Sew the three layers together using a straight stitch with a 1/4-inch seam allowance, meaning you stitch about 1/4 inch from the edge of the fabric. 5Measure the circumference of the table and subtract 3 inches from the measurement. Multiply the measurement by two and cut a piece of elastic thread to this length. Double the thread on your needle and sew around the outer edge of the table protector pad, pulling gently on the thread as you sew. This makes the edge cinch like a fitted bed sheet. 6Slip the protector pad onto the table. The padded corners provide a little protection against bumps and bruises from running into sharp table corners. You can add additional padding beneath the corners to make corners child-safe. Things You Will Need Insulated fabric Iron Tablecloths Sewing pins Sewing machine (or a sewing needle with thread) Elastic thread Tip If you’re unhappy with the visible stitching when making the draped table protector pad, you can create a satin ribbon trim to cover it up. Cut four pieces of 1- to 1 1/2-inch-wide ribbon — two pieces for the length and two for the width. Make mitered corners at the ends of each ribbon. Pin the ribbons over top of the stitching on the tablecloth and sew it in place with a thread that coordinates with the ribbon. google_ad_channel = ‘4818890251’; google_ad_client = ‘pub-3235755782694080’; google_ad_output = ‘js’; google_max_num_ads = ‘4’; google_ad_type = ‘text’; google_image_size = ‘336×280’; google_feedback = ‘on’; google_skip = google_adnum; google_url = ‘bottom’; google_label = ‘top’; google_label_text = ‘Sponsored Links’; References Simple Soft Furnishings: 50 Stylish Sewing Projects to Transform Your Home; Katrin Cargill About the Author Eric Jonas has been writing in small-business advertising and local community newsletters since 1998.

Dining Room Table Pads Protect Your Table A table pad protector is the best way to protect a fine wood table. You appreciate the beauty and value of your table, but kids, pets and even friends and relatives often do not. Kids see the perfect arts and crafts station, pets can climb up on your table – and at some point, a dinner guest will inevitably tip over a wine glass. A dining room table pad cover will protect your table from these accidents. There are many ways that your table’s fine finish can be damaged, some of which can be most unexpected. Excessive heat from serving dishes and hot liquids can discolor your table’s finish, as can hot candle wax dripping from a centerpiece. Exposure to direct sunlight over time can also fade and discolor your table’s finish. Sentry’s heat resistant table pads will protect your table. Water and alcohol can stain and damage your table. Condensation from cold drinks can leave a permanent water mark, alcohol spills can lift your finish and red wine can leave a colorful stain. Sentry’s water-proof vinyl table pad top will protect your valuable table. Scratches, nicks and dents can happen at a moment’s notice. Children doing homework or projects can scratch your table with their books, pens, and craft supplies. Cats and dogs may climb up and do irreversible damage to your table with their curious claws. Dropped dishes, china and glassware can scratch and dent your table. Your dining room table is a long-lasting, beautiful piece of furniture. Give it the protection it needs with a dining room table protector from Sentry.

The heights and heat factors are fairly standard in our industry. A medium 3/8ʺ table pad protects up to 350 degrees, while a ½ʺ table pad protects up to 550 degrees. The heat factor is a bit misunderstood, because if you were to take something directly out of your oven at 550 degrees and set it directly on your linen, you would scorch the linen, and several seconds later you will melt the top of any table pad cover. So when reading the literature from custom table pad factories it usually says, “Table pads protect tables from accidental scratches, spills, and heat.”

In these days of robotics and mass production, we take pride in the fact that your table pad is custom and handmade the exact same way as your grandmother’s pad. Our gals cut, snip and tuck in the same way table pads have been made for 100 years—with great care. Folding and unfolding the table pad over many years puts stress on the hinges. If the hinges are not constructed properly, they will wear out rapidly. Pioneer’s table pad hinges are handmade for strength and durability. They will withstand the test of time and stress. What other industry can promise you such quality in this impersonal age?

100 years ago, everything that left our table pad factory folded in quarters. We made table pads this way for about 30 years. Then the engineering of table pad covers changed. Most table pads were then made to fold in thirds, except those for very wide tables, which still folded in quarters. We did this for the next 30 years. Now the majority of custom table pads that leave table pad factories fold once like a book, except, again, table pads for very wide or long tables may have to fold in thirds or quarters.
