Hi friends, this is not much of a change but it is one I am happy about and glad to be finished with.
Since painting the chairs around our kitchen table black (view that post here), I have been on the look out for new place mats. This is how our table looked a few days ago.
You see, I really wanted something that would coordinate more with the black in our chairs. I have been on the lookout for several weeks for just the right style. I have been able to find those round black weave place mats easily enough but not anything similar to what I already have with a black trim. I even toyed with the idea of adding a new trim to my existing place mats but ruled that out since I didn’t want to risk destroying these by removing the trim that was on them already.
So I decided instead to start searching for some cute black quilted place mats. Why of course that shouldn’t be too hard, should it? I just know I have seen those everywhere! Only…why is it when you are on the hunt for something, it often is nowhere to be found.
After many weeks of searching for just the right look, and perusing fabrics with the idea of making my own, I came to the resounding conclusion that what I really wanted was what I already had! Only I wanted it with a black trim! I really do love my existing low maintenance place mats.
So, Saturday afternoon, I took out my crafters acrylic paint and got to work! After several hours of patience and steady application I was finished! I know it’s a small transformation in the world of blogger greats but I wanted you to see that sometimes everything you need is already in your own hands!
