Childs Chalkboard Activity Table From a $5 Pine Coffee Table
I purchased this pine coffee table on ebay for $5 with a view to giving it a makeover. I decided to give it a new look and purpose using some chalkboard paint and bright colours to turn it into an activity table for kids. I used water based paint in birdseed yellow, then a coat of real lawn green over the top and a little sanding to distress in places. This has now gone to a new home and was purchased for a little girl. I had a lot of paint left over and this paint has been used on at least 3 other projects so it is a little hard to cost this project in regard to paint used. The chalkboard paint was in a very small tin and cost about $20.
