DIY Chalkboard Table Runner -

Hi friends! I got a lot of questions about that table runner I had on my table in my Fall Dining Room Reveal post. You can see the full reveal {here}. It’s actually a very simple DIY project {I think I say the word simple on my blog in every post.. it’s the way I roll!} Anyways I wanted to quickly show you how I made this DIY chalkboard table runner so you can make one of your own for your fall table setting…

For the table runner I simply purhased a board from Lowes & had them cut it to the size I wanted. I wanted to leave room on the ends for place settings if needed, so I had it cut so that it would fall in the middle of the table only. After that I simply painted the board with chalkboard paint, let it dry, & then seasoned the board with chalk by rubbing chalk all over the board & wiping off with a rag to give it that used chalkboard look. I then attempted to doodle on it. You can do better than me ;)

I thought it would be cute at a thanksgiving meal to all write what you are thankful for on the board before you ate the thanksgiving meal.. What do you think? Leave me a comment below, find me on Facebook or chat with me on Instagram.. I would love to hear from you!
