If you have been eyeing the burlap placemats and table runner from Mary and Martha; but holding back because you knew your family would destry them in one meal. Well, you are not alone!
Jane also wanted to use the burlap placemats but knew they wouldn’t last long with her littles. So she came up with a great way to make them last longer!
How to Make Burlap Placemats Last Longer
The last couple of months I’ve been wanting the hottest trend in Home Decor which is Burlap! Burlap is both natural and rustic. No matter what your specific decor is in your home, it can be enhanced in some way with burlap! To me, burlap leaves the home feeling cozy and content.
I wanted to protect these treasures with something that will make them last longer! I didn’t want the orange juice and coffee soaking into these beauties, which would be after the first meal would it not? I decided to spray my burlap runners first to preserve them.
I chose Krylon Acrylic Clear Spray and sprayed them on all sides about three times. It did leave them a bit stiffer but still flexible and I have not doubt that they will last me a long time!
