Natural Fall Table Runner

Our breakfast nook is visible from our foyer. 
It isn’t always very pretty because this table gets used a lot.
(homework, crafts, entertaining, paper airplane making….)
The table was once a workbench in my garage.

 Today, the table looks pretty so I will share it with you.
The Burlap Window Panels got me started on more Fall Decor.

Pine cones, real mini pumpkins, votive candles in recycled jars lay on top of 1X6 pine.
The random number eight is an address number from the hardware store.
I updated my light fixture – that post is coming soon. 
(I made the Burlap Lamp Shades last year)
There is even some left over moss stuck to some of the burlap from the storage box it was in all year.

Happy October Sunday!

I like how you decorated your table down the center like you did. That little #8 is so cute. Love how you repurposed it! Your burlap draperies really warm up the space and go perfect with your Fall decor.

Beautiful and inspiring, as always! I am still eye-balling those burlap drapes…..just having trouble finding the roll of burlap at a hardware or nursery center. All I've found so far is that super-stiff stuff on the bolt at the fabric store….

Hey gal the table looks wonderful, simple and clean looking but still tells a story. Really love how your burlap curtain panels look with your table.
