Yes, you read that right! I want my kids to write on this table. We just painted a chalkboard table for the boys’ playroom.

It was a great find from my friend’s yard sale – heavy and oak with great chunky turned legs and the fantastic price of $5. Thanks so much, Sara, for the great find and deal! I’m sorry I don’t have a proper before picture. We were just so excited to get to work on it since it has been sitting in the playroom like this for quite some time:
There were some scratches on the top which happened when we transported it so I had to sand them out with my new toy – a palm sander. Since we were doing a chalk board top I wanted a very smooth surface.

So Conor is starting early with chalk paint! I gave him a little chip brush and he was so careful with the paint and his strokes. He couldn’t wait for his big brother to see what he did.
We did two coats of ASPC in Antibes Green to go with the apple green and white walls in their playroom. Then I had some leftover Valspar chalk board paint from the black board we made John for his 3rd birthday:

I debated using ASCP in Napoleonic Blue (three coats with no wax gives you a chalk board) but thought the black would be better.
And here it is in the playroom:
The boys had so much fun drawing

I love that I’ve given them another creative opportunity in their playroom and I also love that my 3 year old was such a huge part of this project.
