I have a black coffee table and it really needs some color but every time I have a runner on it Hannah, and every other child that comes to my house, take it off. She has also learned that if something is on it and out of her reach all she has to do is pull the runner and it magically comes right to her.
My solution...screws! I know that sounds ugly but you really can't even tell. I had Phil screw the runner down to the coffee table and it keeps the runner straight and you can't even tell. It just stays nice.
I folded the edges under and the screws are on the bottom so unless you know about it you can't even see the screws.
Hannah isn't sure what to do now?
I am so happy how that turned out that I am looking around my house for other things that I can screw down. :)
