Creating a Chalkboard Table

There is something about chalkboards that makes me so happy. So I recently decided to turn an old coffee table into a chalkboard table for my son's creative chalk endeavors. 

It's so very simple.  The only things you need are an old table, chalkboard paint, and a paint brush.

One old coffee table + chalk board paint = lots of fun

This particular table didn't require any more prep work than making sure it was clean and dust free.  The chalkboard paint is very thick so I had them shake it for me in the paint department at the home improvement store for a couple minutes.

I ended up putting three coats of paint on the table.  I waited about 15 minutes in between applying the coats of paint and then let it dry overnight before using it for the first time.

My niece is the first one to test out the table
