What do Remodelista and chimney sweeps have in common?

Drop cloths, it turns out. We are forever waxing lyrical about the virtues of the utilitarian painter's drop cloth (see 5 Quick Fixes: Canvas Drop Cloths as Instant Decor). Imagine our delight when we discovered a black version, thanks to a tip from a savvy Remodelista reader. The black version, which is preferred by chimney sweeps, is slightly harder to come by than the natural-colored standard; we found our Black Canvas Drop Cloth for $24 from Homestead.

It got us thinking that maybe dying the natural ones indigo could look pretty good, too. Stay tuned.
