I wanted to replace my table runner with a fabric that co-ordinated with my dining room drapes, as well as make a wider one.
Here's the old one.
I thought about putting another fabric on the back to make it reversible but decided not to. The light gold material was a trim used in my office and I will show you that project another day.
I used the plaid for the dining room. I have a lot of black in that room.
I use this room to sew, paint, exercise, etc.
Here's the finished product on the table. I hope this isn't too dark for you to see. You can enlarge by clicking on it.
I had enough material to make a narrow one for the buffet. This really brought more color into the room and brightened things up a lot.
This is a clearer pic that also shows the fringe on the end. I wanted the runner to hang over a little, in case I set a plate at the end of the table. I hated the tassel on the other runner because it interfered with setting a plate on it.
I also painted the knobs on the buffet draws black. It is an old dresser that gives me storage for silverware, place mats, table clothes and napkins for all holidays. It previously had white knobs and looked a bit too country. CeeKay said paint those things and I took her advice. Much better now.
