|Note: The "old" were the same for both my breakfast room and den|
Two and half table runners later (used the forth as my table runner on the breakfast table) with 3" pleats every 19 inches with ties at the pleats the new set goes up. I love table runners because they are already lined and unusually heavy enough material to hold the pleat well and yet give a little drape when needed and the cost is so cheap compared to a yard of material in today's world.
2 Chairs redone with cut from table cloth. I have a lot of this left, so looking for what to do with that. Thinking placemats, coasters, hot pads, oven glove well later for this.
Then den redo:
New pillows (Pier 1) with coupon for 20% off and another 10% off for bonus day and drapes (World Market). Ok so one chair has a blanket Mr Kitty likes to sit on. . .
with all materials and new pillows I spent well under my $300 budget and have material left to do other things with. I love coupons and I love on sale. All the redo took less than 48 hours and it has made Spring feel like it has entered the house while the flowers bloom outside too.
What is your recent redos? Bargains? Spring into action and take on a project.
