Chalkboard Table Runner - Wine and Cheese Party

One of my first articles for was about how to host a wine and cheese party. It was a fantastic excuse for me to have some friends over, drink wine, have cheese and make a cute tablescape. I must say that I quite enjoy my life these days :)

If you are a follower of my blog, then it's no secret that I adore all things "chalkboard." So when I found this chalkboard contact paper on, I knew I could make a fabulous chalkboard runner for my table.

I cannot stress how easy this was to do. Cut the chalkboard contact paper to fit your table, and start getting your art on :) If you make a mistake..erase erase erase! The more rustic looking the better!
