I’ve had this vision in my head for a long time now, probably months, and I finally put it together. To be honest I’ve been waiting for Thanksgiving as well as collecting the brass candle stick holders that I wanted to style on top of this “Wooden Raised Table Runner”.
I’ve always preferred table runners over table cloths. I think it add some fancy to the table without over taking the whole thing. Then I thought, what if this table runner was raised higher? Really elevate what is on top of it? So here we go.
Our table is 108″ long so I measured out that a 6 foot long “Raised Table Runner” would leave enough room to still have place settings at each end. I went with a 12″ width .. mainly because wood usually comes standard in that size .. therefore keeping me from having to make cuts.
I sanded all the edges of the board to give it a softer look and less like just a piece of wood on the table. Also, sharp edges are no fun to bump into while passing dishes around.
I found some “furniture bun feet” on amazon .. my specific ones can be found HERE. However, if you just search “furniture bun feet” on amazon or home depot you can find all kinds of styles.
I simply Liquid Nailed them to the board and there you have it! One of the easiest dining room show stoppers to make.
I styled mine with brass candle sticks I found a the Goodwill over various trips .. not one was more that $2.99, as well as some fall colored candle sticks I found in the Target Dollar Spot and lambs ear garland from Hobby Lobby.
If you happen to make this DIY, tag me! I’d love to see it.
