Old Coffee Table Becomes Game Table With Scoreboard


Lucky for me, our neighbor didn't sell an old coffee table at her garage sale. She moved it to the street, and I grabbed it. I decided it would be a great game table for our Florida room after it had a coat of paint and a chalkboard top.

This is what it looked like when I found it on the street.

I selected a paint that matched the fabric on a nearby chair.  After two coats of paint, I applied two coats of chalkboard paint to the top.

After I conditioned the top, we put it to work.  We play games on it, and the top is where we keep score.

    Great job! How did you apply the paint, with a brush, roller, foam brush or sprayer?
