This is the table I found on the curb. I had to start by gluing one of the pencil legs back in place. The screw was completely stripped.
Next, I sprayed it with chalkboard paint. Two coats easily did the job. Here is a guest that decided to visit our table. Hello little butterfly.
I then cut a hole out of the center with a jigsaw and placed a plastic red bowl in the middle to hold our chalk.
I left it removable so it would be easy to clean. The whole project took me thirty minutes and did not cost a dime! (I already had a can of chalkboard paint at home) It was well worth the time for what joy it created.
I am not sure my son will be much of an artist. He is really into endless circles right now. It reminds me of a dog chasing his tail!
However, the table has been great for practicing our numbers and letters. It would be perfect to write spelling words on for older kids. Chalk just makes everything more fun.
