Tables love fabric

Tables love fabric

A little table rehab for sister Jen's kitchen 
 ~ a linen runner on top of a linen cloth
simple and effective at tieing the old and the new furniture together ...
as Jen decides on what look she is going for.
(3 years on and she is still working on it!)

If your table looks lost then try taking a piece of nice linen but don't make it cover the entire table. Leaving some of the wood showing creates a nicer feel. 
If you don't have time to sew then just iron the edges under.
The runner on top creates the focal point and links it all together. 
Again you don't need to sew it ~ just fold it over so the raw edges are hidden.
Have some fun and bring summer into the kitchen.

I'm in Texas at the moment and hoping to be back in blogging mode soon - but plenty of distractions. 
See here for one reason!

What a great idea. I love your choice of fabrics. I'm sure Jenni loved the transformation and the creative boost to finish her project.
