#6 Cutting a long Block of (2x4) Painted-Sanded and added Numbers- To use as Table Numbers, so your Guests know which table to sit at.

#7 Handcrafted Burlap Table Runners- Great to add to your table or use to hang off the edge for added texture.

#8 Re-Purposed Vintage Wedding dress- Made into a Table Cloth- added a Burlap Table Runner for a Sweet Rustic Touch.
