We’ve searched high and low to bring you the table runner finds below. From basic solids to trendy patterns (and even a few DIY favorites), get ready to plan your next tablescape

They say that fashion is cyclic and decorating trends are definitely no different. The old often gets recycled and upgraded to create hot new trends. But this takes a whole new meaning with the use of reclaimed wood.

Sometimes the old flooring in your attic or that garage shed wood can be reused as you renovate your home and give a more modern sheen. There are other occasions when locally sourced reclaimed wood can keep your home revamp within budget.
