burlap table runner

Here is the DIY burlap table runner.  I appreciate how easy they are to make.




My sister and I actually came up with the idea.

She is one creative chick. Check out her blog The Wanna Be Cottage.



So here is how you achieve this runner.


You first will have to measure the width and desired length.


I have mine hanging down over my table 9" on both sides.





My width is 15". Once you have figured out what you want, CUT!



Next sew along the edges.

I enjoy the frayed look, so I didn't do this for mine.





The most important step is to choose a color.

Here are 4 that we thought would look really great.



The turquoise won my vote.






Tape and paint. Work in sections.


Here is where you creativity steps in.


I did two strips 1/2" w. The strips are 10" apart.


You could do one big strip down the middle with two smaller strips beside.

The Burlap will look great with almost anything you choose.



Let the paint dry, and peel the tape off. I did have to touch it up in some places.


One great runner, and I didn't have to break my budget.


If you try this send me your picture.  I would love to see your creativity.

Love this runner! I have a burlap runner too, they give such great texture. I would never have thought to paint it though! Will you share this tutorial on my linky party this Friday?

Interesting article. It is unfortunate that over the last years, the travel
industry has had to fight terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, influenza, swine
flu, as well as first ever true global tough economy.
Through it the industry has proven to be powerful, resilient in addition to dynamic, acquiring
new methods to deal with trouble

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like
yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm
not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
