Well here we are at Monday again! How did another week fly by so quickly? It always amazes me that I can blink, and find myself in a new week!
Yesterday was a rainy Sunday, and I didn't do much, but I did find a stash of burlap (my new decorating BFF) and I decided to add some to my dining room tablescape. Now, I am NOT one to change my table top with every new month, season, or holiday. To be honest, it usually only gets a new look for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The rest of the year, I try to keep it simple and neutral. Although, now that I am blogging, that could change. It IS fun to set up a new or seasonal table, I just have not been in the habit in the past.
So, I just added my burlap to the generic all year round look that my dining room table is usually sporting.
I wanted the willow placemats to show beneath the burlap, so I made the burlap mat smaller. It was so not a professional job, just a quick hack job with scissors, and then I pulled at the sides until I achieved a little bit of fringe all the way around.
I as cut strips of burlap for to wrap around the napkins like a napkin ring.
I used my thrifty find chargers that I found a few weeks ago at the GW, and some of my ironstone dishes.
The ikat napkins were a Pottery Barn purchase.
The little grass containers were a Pier 1 find.
It's far from perfect, but it freshens up the table a bit, and it only took me 20 minutes. I'm all about the fast projects, people!
Hope you have a great week! See you tomorrow!
