Our New Obsession: The Black Drop Cloth

Issue 17 · The Artful Life · April 25, 2012

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.
