But the problem with glass tops on wooden tables is .... the mess gets under the glass, despite my efforts to keep them above! So instead of just wiping (or scrubbing, depending on the meal and the child) the table, sometimes I have to lift the glass and clean the underside of the glass as well as the top of the table. ((sigh)) I don't know about you, but that's like 3x the necessary table-scrubbing!
So today at Joann Fabrics I spied the vinyl table coverings and got 2 yards (@ $3.99/yd). But I had a 50% off 1 cut of fabric coupon (it was in the Sunday paper, but it also comes in the mail directly to your home if you are on their mailing list). So for just under $4 I have a piece a piece of my mind left ;).
Just FYI - I guessed at the 2 yards part, but it over hangs by about 4 inches on every side. I wouldn't want a lot more, because it would hit peoples legs when they sit down.
