Our family just purchased a new dining set ...seats 8. The chairs are lovely, covered in dark brown leather, very comfy. The table is SO Heavy...:::made of Himalayan rosewood, and has iron touches as well. We are excited as this is our first set after using an old mismatched table we have had for years.
My mission is to create "fun" placemats. Here are my assortment of ideas, but first I wanted YOUR vote!
Recently, I became a Pinterest member. What a neat site. It has been of value to me as it replaces my "bookmarks" that I am endlessly referring to. So, very cool!
Several of my ideas came from the ideas of other on Pinterest.
The first pic of denim placemats are adorable....and perhaps are my first choice...:::so far. I can see us recycling jeans together as a family LOL!
Here are cute placemats that roll up & travel. Easily created for & by kids! There's a link below on "how to" make these.....
Fancy-schmancy placemats that would take a great deal of time & talent.
Love the colors! However, I am NOT a quilter.
Perhaps my children would enjoy this project the most! And we have plenty of great books ...:::somewhere in the garage:::... that are falling apart. They could each chose a favorite & be creative. We have a fantastic place in town that laminates large stuff.
Lastly, here is an easy idea that uses of all things...:::burlap! I could stencil our names, or a special word or even a scripture reference....there are so many creative possibilities.
And here's an idea for the edges.
Our table runner has quilted, ruffled touches, and I just love the turquoise, brown and lime green!
Here are placemats that match. I chose these first....but that was before I thought it would be fun to let our children add thier creative touch!
So, what do YOU think?
It's YOUR turn to vote!
