My grandniece wanted to help me paint and I couldn't let her. So I bought her a beat up nightstand from Goodwill for $3.00, flowers for $1.29 and let her do her own project. The particle board top was damaged badly so we covered the worst of the spots with flowers. I think she did a great job.
Finished. Nice work Lulu.
Started with a really beat up Goodwill find. A light sanding and cleaning.
Homemade chalk paint.
Here is the painted project.
To cover the damage on the top, she put flowers on with Mod Podge. (The hardest part is letting her do it herself!)
