DIY table runners and DIY Farm House Table

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Last weekend I had the chance to get started on my tablescape for Christmas Eve dinner. I was inspired by this picture on Pinterest below:
When I went to JoAnn all I could find was a smaller buffalo checked fabric so I went with it. I don't sew so I also snagged up some no-sew tape that you adhere with an iron.

This project seriously didn't hardly take any time and I got THREE table runners out of two yards of fabric! I made one with black poms, one with white, and one with red.

White for the kitchen table.
Black for our (gasp!) NEW dining room table made by M himself!
It's true, friends, M is becoming quite the carpenter! And with his birthday being on Christmas I'm starting to wonder if he's turning into Jesus? Kidding. ;) But he did an amazing job on our farm house table. I couldn't begin to give you a tutorial but he got and followed the plans from Ana White. This bad boy only cost us $130 (not including tools)...and they retail for at least $1000 and up from Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware. Right now we are rocking folding chairs while he finishes up a bench for one side and some black chairs. He seems to really enjoy building things and I sure enjoy putting them in our makes our space extra special. :)


  1. That table is amazing! So glad you're going with a bench ;)

  2. That table looks awesome!! I want one in my kitchen in my next house!!!
