DIY Painted Table Runner

I am a frequent and proud visitor of the Walmart clearance aisle. Most of the time there is not much there, but a few weeks ago I found this bamboo table runner which I really liked for only $5.

However, when I got it home it ended up looking kind of dull... so I had the idea to paint a design on it!

I printed off four different flower designs in two different sizes.  Then I cut them out to use as stencils.

When I was positioning them on the runner I was careful to not let the same flowers get too close together.  I also found that it looked best if I let some of the go over the edge.

Then I just painted the flowers in variety of coordinating colors, again being careful to not let the same colors end up next to each other.  I really love how it turned out! What do you think?
