Next time you go to the hardware store, you might consider adding bedding to your shopping list! Especially if you have a full size bed:
Cotton painter's canvas (or drop cloth) comes in a 6-foot by 9-foot size that makes it perfect for a full size bedskirt without any prep work. On a full bed, it would have an approximately 10-inch overhang on all sides. With its unbleached, nubby cotton appearance, you'll have a chic, au naturel look for only about ten bucks.
