Creative & Romantic Dining Room

Use fabric paint to write a love letter or quote on a length of burlap cut to fit as a tablecloth or runner.

This DIY artistic look is perfect for romantics. Dip a spoon into fabric paint and, holding it a few inches above the fabric, begin "writing" by letting the paint drizzle onto the fabric. Keep the spoon moving in a fluid motion, as this will produce a script that's more artistic than tidy. Reuse wine and pop bottles to serve water. A quirky handwritten label adds a quaint spin. On clean, dry bottles, draw text using a small, rounded paintbrush and glass paint. Borrow a little lingo from wineries to keep it tongue-in-cheek: "Flat MMXI" is an enticing alternative to "Tap Water."
