After I finished my dining room table re-do,(Shown Here) I started to get a little squirrely and decided that the table still needed a little sumthin' -sumthin'. That's when I came up with this idea to make a burlap table runner to place on top.
And you may ask- how exactly, Miss Lori Ann, did you make this burlap table runner?
Well, Here's what I did:
I basically ordered my burlap online from Hobby Lobby (using my 40% off coupon), then washed it on the delicate cycle in the washing machine and hung it out on the line to dry. After it was dry, I ironed it to get some of the wrinkles out. (a little wrinkling gives the burlap a nice worn look)
I was left with a whole mess of burlap strands from fraying the edges, so I decided to make a centerpiece by tying the strings around some of my old glass bottles used as flower vases.
Overall, I'd have to say that I'm quite tickled by how easy to make and budget friendly this table runner was. It also added a nice finishing touch to my Dining Room table and chair make-over.
I hope this idea inspires some of you Do-it-yourself-er's out there!
