Our old coffee table was old, scratched up, and brown. It needed a face lift. We actually weren’t using it at a coffee table anymore, so we thought of what else we could do with it. We had some chalkboard paint on hand and painted the top of the table with that. We painted the base of the table with some other paint we had left over. Color: Aqua Glow by Valspar. We are using the table in our studio¬†as a kid’s play table.

Artwork from the kids… Can you spy: an upside down monkey with crazy long hair, a flower, a rainbow, and a whale with a polka dotted tail?

    Cool!! I love how there is a lip around the edge to contain the chalk. I just saw at lowe’s that there is whiteboard paint now that you can use dry erase markers on. Just FYI!
