I love it when leftovers take on a whole new life. Well, I guess that’s why I’m Salvage Sister, right?
There is just something about grain sacks that makes my heart go pitter-patter.
I was looking for a little runner for this cabinet that was given to us and thought a grain sack one would be perfect. What’s not as perfect can be the price tag so DIY it is… the story of my life.
I rummaged through what I had and came upon some drop cloth material that I thought would be perfect.
Since I am forever changing my decor…and mind…I didn’t both making this the most perfect one in the universe.

DROP CLOTH RUNNER INSTRUCTIONS
- The first step was to measure out what was needed. Who are we kidding…..no measuring happened, but you can if you need to…we won’t tell.
- Lay the material out flat and trim as needed.
- Iron the fabric, if desired. You can take a guess as to my choice.
- Fold the material in half so you have a clean edge and no sewing required.
- Carefully, or quickly, apply Painters Tape to the cloth for your stripes. Measure if you feel the need.
- Take a SPONGE and apply the paint. Wait for the paint to dry before removing the tape.
Again, feel free to make this your own and get as complicated as you like. If it were on a dining room table I might have been more precise but for this little table, this works for me.
UPDATE – I have had this on the table for four years now. That’s some kind of record for this decor changing lady. Even though it’s not “perfect” it sure is good enough for me.
