Roadside Find Re-Do/ Kid's Chalkboard table


I found this one on the side of the road and knew I had to give it a new life, I also used a few new techniques and tricks to help me turn this into something we love for $0!
{homemade wood filler from sawdust and glue, and distress like a pro with Vaseline}
Homemade wood filler....saw dust and Elmer's Glue...mix, fill in hole and it dries in minutes! Sand to make smooth and get to work!

After the spray paint was dry, I wiped the areas where I added the Vaseline with a paper towel to reveal the dark paint underneath

I painted the areas of the table that I wanted to distress with dark brown crafts paint....added a thin layer of Vaseline over the painted areas and then gave it a few coats of Antique White Spray Paint
