Table Runner: Before and After
Howdy y'all! I got a little tired of seeing my dining table look like this....So naked and exposed.
I like rooms that feel cozy and warm, and the amount of dining table that was showing was making the room feel a little too cold.
I love the look of my dining table, so I didn't want to cover it up completely with a table cloth. It's gorgeous, solid walnut with amazing lines (consequently, it also weighs a figurative ton). A table runner seemed to be the best bet.
I purchased 5 yards of fabric at my fave fabric store (Home Fabrics), for about $6 a yard....and then I procrastinated. I had other projects that just seemed more exciting.
At one point, I pulled out an old table runner I had made for our other much smaller dining table. It was WAY too small for this table. Every time I walked by, I kept hearing in my head "Big guy in a little coat...."
So, I finally cracked down and made my table runner.....turns out my fabric had a beautiful reverse side, so I was able to make my runner reversible! It's a two-fer!
One side is creamy linen, and the other side is dreamy grey-blue.
Which side do you like better? Creamy linen or dreamy grey-blue?
Stay-tuned later this week, because I will be posting a tutorial on how you can make a reversible table runner for your table.
