Creative uses for Bedsheets

Bed sheets can be purchased fairly inexpensively at yard sales, thrift shops and department stores, and come in a multitude of designs and colors. For that reason, you can use them to make things you might normally have to buy. Whether you’re trying to decorate on a limited budget, or have some old sheets in the closet you hate to throw out, put them to good use with these ideas.

  2. Make a shower curtain.
  3. Use as a drop cloth when painting.
  4. Put one in your car to keep it clean when hauling dirty items.
