|I love vintage tablecloths and I was wondering if I could make a table runner for our breakfast bar without cutting up one of my pretty vintage cloths.|
|I carefully folded my tablecloth to the size that I needed for the breakfast bar. I used stiff spray starch and ironed my folded cloth. I tacked vintage pink aprons to each end of my runner. I didn't have two aprons that matched...of course....so,|
|I used a pretty pink gingham checked one for the other end. This apron is what I call a 3/4 apron.....it has the arms, but is short like a regular apron.|
|In the past, I have used my vintage tablecloths as back covers on the dining chairs in the sun room.|
|The runner that I had on the bar earlier had lots of yellow in it, but the new one has blue...what's a girl to do?|
Well,,,, she sets the breakfast bar with pretty blue/white dishes.....
|Tucks some touches of blue to the existing vignettes around the kitchen counters.|
|Now, my kitchen has a fresh new look!|
I made a simple floral design from some small branches that H cut from our ornamental pear trees that line the front driveway. The trees are in full bloom and even have some small green leaves out.
|Look at that gorgeous blue New Mexico sky....|
|It's a wonderful day to sit on the front porch and sip sweet tea....|
