I went down to the scrap box and found some pink and brown flannel and decided we needed a table runner. I found a piece that was 10x44 in the pink and brown cupcake material. Mr. Miller says it looks like Strawberry Shortcake has invaded his house, little does he know that for his comment I am going to make matching Napkins today just for him to use. I know it is the little things in life that can make a wife smile through meals. Back to the project, I then cut a piece of pink flannel to size and sewed a simple seam around 3 sides with right sides together. I then turned the fabric right side out and did a simple zig zag around to finish.
Voila! A Valentines Table Runner that I didn't have to purchase anything for. I used my tall multi purpose hurricane and put one of my Christmas Pillars in on top of whole coffee beans to bring out the brown. I am thinking of swapping out the beans for conversations hearts. I will let you know.
I decided that the dining room still needed something. Mr. Miller and I had a bedroom set that belonged to Gigi. I still have the dresser, it serves as a great storage piece for me in the laundry room. The mirror however was just collecting dust, so I thought about it and said to myself why not take the legs off and hang it in my dining room. Mr. Miller is always leery when he comes home from work and I start with " I was thinking...". He agreed and this weekend he brought that wish to fruition for me. It is always so pleasing when you can look around at what you have and see what new things you can do to it to change things up a bit. This project cost us $2.50. We had to buy the wire and hooks to hang. I can handle a new mirror for that price.
