Replace the traditional idea of a regular table runner with a super chic yet rustic old window shutter to decorate your dining table. A large rectangular shutter featuring a weathered texture is placed right in the middle of the table, forming the perfect base for table centerpieces that compliment the whole arrangement even better. The paint chipping off at certain spots makes it even more appealing, while that extra large table vase is all about splendour. What the table vase has been made out of is a vintage looking ice cream freezer sporting a pastel green color and a metallic touch to itself that goes just right with the shutter placed underneath.
