I blogged about them a while back and have since then taken note of the endless creative ideas and variety of uses (even if you’re not getting married!) around blogland. Boy-oh-boy, do I have a list for you, my dears!  From decorating boxes, packaging  and invites — inspiration abounds. Here is 1 of 4 installments.  Enjoy!

French Vintage Goodies 4: DIY Table Runners




OMG, these photos totally had me at burlap and mercury glass.  Swoon, swoon! What an absolutely gorgeous and inspiring DIY by Julie over at EAB Designs. Using a do-it-yourself silkscreen printing kit, she created these custom burlap table runners for her dining room table. I could actually see these do double-duty as table numbers at a reception. More pics and resource info at Julie’s blog. Check it out!
