head diy Design Fanatic: Nightstand Runner

Nightstand Runner

I made window panels for my Master Bedroom last year & had a little fabric left over, so I kept it. Several months ago I found 2 nightstands at TJ Maxx for $139 each and brought them home. I love them, except for one problem ....DUST! The mirror finish shows dust, fingerprints, water spots, etc.




So last night I had a little time, went to my office & pulled out the leftover fabric and started sewing.
Voila! All finished! Now I can set down a drink without running for a coaster or napkin.







That was an easy quickie project. So glad it's finished! The best part about it? It didn't cost me any $$$. Yay!
Hope you all have a terrific weekend. I am off to help Mr. Fanatic with tiling the upstairs bathroom. You remember we just tiled our  Master Bathroom a few weeks ago. Lord, give me strength!


Thanks for stopping by.

  5. That looks fantastic! I envy your sewing ability. I have none. My MIL is sewing a runner for Jemma's dresser and nightstand. Hopefully we will pick them up next week! Great job!

  7. What a great idea and it looks great! Looks very similar to the table runners I made from brown tweed window panels a few weeks ago. If people sewed like they used to a whole new world would open up, lol!!

  8. the runner for your nightstand turned out nice! I am not sure if at the ends you put a tassle, might I suggest tassles in a rich chocolate brown. How did you make your drapes, would you share your ideas? Beautiful room! And you can hang tassles from your lamps.

  12. Hey there ... I posted a note the other day about your gorgeous panels and bedroom, but I don't see it. :( I must've messed something up ... anyway, I LOVE your bedroom ... the fabric is gorgeous (I'm so jealous of your sewing abilities), and the tables are to die for ... they add that wow factor !! Beautiful !!
