table runners

I bought these beautiful pieces of vintage French linen some time ago, the patterned pieces are rectangular in shape and the plane piece was square. I thought how lovely they would look made up as table runners with the plain piece on the back but I knew that the coloured piece wouldn't go with the decor in our home. Back then we didn't have any idea that we would be able to buy our cottage in Wales and that they would look perfect in that setting and on the lovely Ercol table and chairs that we have bought to use there. 

The table and chairs were finished I a dark varnish, my husband has sanded the table top and painted it in grey like the one in the bottom photo, two chairs are also painted and we have two more chairs like these and two with arms to paint before the set is finished. 

I have made up the runners, the plain piece was exactly the right size to back them both and I think they will look great against the beautiful beech table top.

Your runners look great! I hope that you enjoy using them on your new table. I have those chairs and a matching table, and am slowly - very slowly! - building a collection of Ercol furniture! I love table runners too and have a collection of them! xx

That is beautiful and those runners will be spectacular with them.

Perfect...both the table and the runners to go with it.

I think that seems like a great match!
