How To Change The Look Of Furniture

Furniture is an investment and not something most can
change out when we tire of them. But how about
changing the look with a simple table runner. You can
either buy one in the store or make one from left over
fabric. This is a great no sew project, just get out your
iron and fabric glue or ironing tape. Cut to size, fold
over the edges and iron. The length of the runner is up
to you, I don't use a formula and have had them hang
over the edges on a table or dresser. For a chair, you
need a longer one and first remove the seat cushion,
start the runner at the back of the chair over the top,
down the back, over the seat and down the front.
Then replace the cushion.
