Before: We bought this table at a yard sale when we first got married. We've had it for almost 10 years and it is still going strong. The chairs have sadly not made it. Someday I will make beautiful slip covers for these awesome Costco chairs. :)
I decided I wanted to make a table runner with this fabric. It was on sale at JoAnn's, so I bought what was left. If you want to see what else I did with it, click here.
2.5 yards of a pretty fabric of your choice (you will have enough left over to make some pillows or maybe a matching valance)
2.5 yards of a backing material. I usually use a white sheet.
iron and ironing board
1. First, you have to measure your table and figure out what kind of table runner you want. My table is 36 in. by 66 in. So I decided I wanted my runner to be 16 in. by 76 in. Making sure to leave room for a seam allowance, I cut my fabric to 17in. by 77 in.
3. You also need to decide if you want a straight end or a pointed end. I decided on a straight end because our table has seen better days and I wanted to cover it up.
