Really-try this at home.
I went to this wonderful antique store in Saugerties over the weekend and bought a very pretty vintage crocheted dresser runner. It wasn’t much in the way of color, but the spiral design caught my eye and on taking a closer look, the piece was sturdy cotton-I knew it would dye well. I have a very wide night table and envisioned the piece reddish brown on the light oak of the table. It was just a fleeting thought and then I promptly forgot about it. I remembered last night.
Just for fun I threw in a few muslin bags and a silk twill square.
So go on! Try this at home!
