Old wood lath sticks from our bathroom demo day!
Repurposed Wood Lath Runner
Have you ever thrown away the old lath from a remodeling project? You may regret it when you see this unique way to repurpose wood lath. Create a rustic centerpiece foundation with this how-to. Great way to save the unique character of old wood lath. Or make one of these with new lath and give it your own style!
Cut lath into lengths for a rustic table runner. We cut 16-14" lengths and 2-24" lengths. Sand each piece with an electric sander until smooth.
Use wood glue and small nails to attach lath sticks to 2 longer sections in a railroad-type pattern.
Brush a coat or 2 of water-based poly to seal. Once dry, you're done!
Style and accessorize your new, repurposed wood lath table runner! It's the perfect, rustic foundation for any centerpiece, and a great way to appreciate old wood that would otherwise have gotten thrown away!
You could also make it with new lath and give it your own style. If you'd like a free printable tutorial, check out the full blog post: https://lorabloomquist.com/repurposed-wood-lath-runner/
