How I Made My Owan Table Protector

When you have a toddler and a baby, your home gets messy. Messy kid toys, sticky fingers, and food are just some of the things that bring about the mess. Rather than try to deal with it all on my own, I looked for practical solutions.

One of those solutions was an Owan table protector from Target. My family doesn’t use our dining room table enough. In fact, we hardly ever use it at all because there’s so much stuff we store in the area instead. We used to keep blankets on top of the table the whole time but keeping them clean was such a hassle because they kept getting dirty again so quickly.

Our solution was to buy an owan table cover from Target (shown above). It costs less than $20 and it does exactly what we needed it to do: Protect our table from messes, dirt, bugs and other little nuisances that tend to cause damage over time.

If you’re looking for ways to protect your home from kids’ messes without spending a lot of money or reinventing your entire home decor, look no further!

What is an Owan Table Protector?

An owan table cover is a lightweight, waterproof fabric that you can use to cover your dining table while you’re not using it. It’s great because it keeps your table clean and protected from messes. It can also protect your furniture from staining from spilled food and drinks. The main reason we don’t use our dining table as much as we should is because we store so much stuff in the area. From blankets, toys, and extra bedding to extra chairs and couches and more, we don’t keep our table area open enough to fit everything in. If we did, we wouldn’t need to store so many things there in the first place!

How I Made My Owan Table Protector

We didn’t just buy an owan table cover and call it a day. amdecided to make our own owan table cover to save money and make our table even more practical. We bought the fabric and the pattern, and we cut out the protector, sewed it together, and hung it on the wall. If you don’t have any sewing experience, you can also buy a custom table protector that you can have printed.

To make our owan table cover, we bought two pieces of fabric that were each about 48″ long (roughly the length of our table). We bought the fabric from the craft store and it came in different widths, so make sure to buy the width that’s right for your table. We had to hem the edges of the two fabric pieces so that they overlapped by about 6 inches, and we pinned them together so that they overlapped perfectly.

Then, we measured the table (which is about 80″ long) to make sure that the fabric pieces would cover the table completely. Once we had that measurement, we marked where the ends of the fabric pieces needed to be so that they overlapped by 6 inches. We folded the cover in half and sewed the edges of the fabric together to make a hem. Then, we pinned the hem together so that it was folded in half and sewed it together, too. We did this to make a drawstring on one end of the cover so that we could hang it on the wall.

Things You’ll Need for an Owan Table Protector
