I have been searching for a vintage Battenburg lace table runner for a while now and have not been able to find one that I loved so I decided to make one using a tablecloth that I had on hand.
I have collected a few that have stains on the fabric that I have been unable to remove......torn places.....and in the case of the one I chose to make into a runner it had fabric puckering around the lace.
As you can see in the before photo, I was unable to stop the puckering around the lace. I simply cut the fabric away from the lace......not a quick task...lol....about 3 hours!
I am really pleased with the way my runner turned out......I love it!
After I created a centerpiece for the table, I added some spring touches to the fireplace mantel
I hung a new picture or three...lol. over the buffet. You have seen all of these pics many times in different rooms in the house.
The formal dining room is all ready for our family to enjoy Easter dinner together.....
