Something had to give, so book runners are out and burlap is in!
I love how burlap fits perfectly with modern decor and adds a subtle hint of color. It also adds texture and visual interest to the decor, without taking too much attention away from the centerpieces.
And it doesn't get much more rustic than burlap, which is perfect for me, since I really want to mix traditional and rustic elements into our decor to compliment our reception site.
And did I mention that burlap could actually be versatile? Just by finishing the edges of the runner and screen printing text onto the fabric, the burlap blends right in with a more sophisticated setting.
I'm completely sold on this idea! The DIY looks simple enough, even for me. Famous last words? Maybe. But we're talking about a project that may or may not require sewing. Yes, sewing is optional! And I think I can definitely handle that right now.
I'll keep you posted on the progress!
Have you ever made a table runner? Any tips?
