I ordered this burlap last week on-line and I'm so excited it's finally arrived. The first project I will be using it for is to create shades for our dining room chandelier.
I love this chandelier and I waited ever so patiently for it to go on sale. So patiently, in fact, that when I made my last inquiry about whether it would ever go on sale, the associate informed me that not only was it on sale, but it was on clearance. It came home with us that very day. It pairs perfectly with our antique furniture and iron accessories.
Second project with the burlap is to sew up two runners for the table. I frequently use copper charges and white dishes and the burlap will be a perfect compliment. Our antique table and chairs are from Italy. We purchased them years ago, from Stephen Thomas Antiques, when we lived in Southern California. We actually happened to be there on a day they were unloading a shipment of antiques from Italy and we ventured back into their warehouse. As soon as we spotted the table we fell in love with it. We purchased the table that day but the chairs were still in the crate. Someone was supposed to call us when the chairs were ready for purchase, BUT ... they didn't call and the chairs were sold to someone else. UGH!! Our table actually sat in our dining room for over a year until we could find six other chairs from Stephen Thomas, to match it. It was hard to be patient, but I do love them.
