I noticed the neighbor threw away a child's bed, dresser and a sewing machine. All of these items looked pretty damaged except for one . . . a small children's play table.
Now, I am not ordinarily accustomed to digging through trash, but this table was so adorable and I could tell it had excellent potential! I grabbed the table and took it home. What a perfect summer project!
I have been wanting to make a chalkboard table for Robbie to play with. This table was just perfect to do so with! he legs on it were wobbly, the paint was all chipped and scratched. Yet, I could see the chalkboard table just waiting for me to create!
|Here is the table before I stripped It down and re-painted.|
|First, I washed the table and took off the legs.|
|Next, I used a power sander to sand the entire table.|
|I used chalkboard paint on the table top.|
|After three coats of chalkboard paint the table top is finished!|
|Now for the legs. The treads on the screws for the legs were stripped. I replaced them to make the table sturdy. I sanded and re-painted the legs. I decide to keep the concept of painting each leg a different color.|
|And we're ready to chalk!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|Robbie absolutely loves his new chalkboard table!|
