I needed a new fall table runner but didn't want to spend a lot of money. I also wanted it done quick since fall is pretty much here! This is what I came up with:
This little table runner took literally 15 minutes to make. No sewing either! This is my first burlap project and I think I'm in love. I measured the table and bought 2 yrds for $3.99/yd. I only used half of it so technically this project was under $5! Whoohoo! Once cut, I frayed the edges by pulling out individual strands. Super easy and just a little messy.
Good afternoon and welcome to my first post on Pages Lane. I am not new to the blogging world, but I am new(ish) when it comes to home decor/crafting. Before this blog, I would say I LIKED home decor, but didn't think my little apartment was worth decorating too much. However, I read this post by the Nester, and she truly inspired me to create a lovely home. I don't have to wait to be in my dream house. I can make my current house (or should I say tiny apartment) cozy and inviting. I have learned that I can create on a budget too, which is huge for my family. I'll talk more about that later.
So, speaking of family . . . I feel like I've been in a rut since I had my firstborn about 18 months ago. I hope I'm not the only mom that feels that way. Don't judge me for wanting to take a nap instead of taking on a new project. :) A lot of my hobbies were put on hold because:
1 - The little guy was awake and needed me 2 - I was too darn tired to do anything 3 - Once again, I was waiting for my "dream house" before doing anything.
The things I would like to include in this blog are:
1 - Home decor 2 - Sewing 3 - Cooking 4 - Photography 5 - Organizing and Maintaining
That last one is HUGE for me. It's what I wish my home was EVERYDAY. Perhaps you could tell already, but I love lists. I make tons and tons and tons of them, and they end up everywhere - notepads, on the computer, in my journal, in my head. Gosh - do you see that I need some help? Haha. I hope this blog serves as a good learning tool.
Happy stay-at-home mom to an active toddler and newborn baby girl. Married to my best friend and live in a great town. I am inspired by beautiful things. I have a forever growing interest in cooking, scrapbooking, crafting, sewing, gardening and photography. One of my greatest desires is to make a house a home.
