Hello, Southern Institute readers! I’m Jess, and I blog over at If Only They Would Nap (because seriously, if my boys would nap, I could get so much done!) I am so happy to be here sharing with you all today. I have been a reader of Jenny’s blog for quite awhile and l.o.v.e. everything she does. So what a joy for me to be here!
After a loooong Wisconsin winter, I decided I needed a little change in my kitchen. And some flowers – who doesn’t love flowers in the spring? So to spruce things up a bit, I whipped up a super easy project – painted burlap placemats!
These are really easy to make for your own home. Here’s how:
4. Now you’re going to fray your edges. Carefully pull out the loose threads of burlap – the ones that are parallel to the side you are fraying.
Thank you, Jess! This is the perfect afternoon project. A little bit of time and effort can make a big difference in our homes.
Please make sure you all visit Jess at her blog… she has a baby on the way and has been making her own maternity clothes. AWESOME! She also has an Etsy shop.
Have a wonderful day. I’ll see you back here soon.
