I love chalkboard paint and all of the fun things you can create. There are so many things you can do with chalkboard paint, but making a table runner? Now that’s genius! When I found this table runner on Anthropologie I just had to re-create it for you.  Besides, I had plenty of vinyl fabric leftover from a previous project and I have chalkboard paint and brushes on hand. Total cost for this Chalkboard Table Runner {Anthropologie Knock-Off}…ZERO! I love it when projects cost me ZERO, don’t you?

Supplies Needed:

  • vinyl fabric (Ask your craft store where the remnants are, I remember when I purchased mine I was able to buy it very cheap!)
  • chalkboard paint
  • paint brush

Once you have all of your supplies gathered up, it’s time to get started!

Chalkboard Table Runner Supplies

Step 1:  Lightly iron your fabric (wrongside) to remove any wrinkles.

Step 2: Place a protectant over your workspace so you don’t accidentally paint your floor.

Step 3: Apply your chalkboard paint to the vinyl fabric and allow to dry for an hour.

Step 4: Apply a second coat of paint to your fabric.  If needed, wait an hour and then apply a third.  Allow the paint to dry for a full 24 hours before you condition it.

Step 5: Condition the table runner by lightly rubbing chalk over the runner and then wiping clean with a soft, dry cloth. You are then ready to use it!

      Hi Angela, I have not noticed any of that yet, but if that is a worry….I have a solution! You can buy BLACK vinyl and colored chalk PENS that can wipe off with warm water. I use chalk pens on black vinyl (faux chalkboard) labels for canisters.
