from ugly table to chalkboard fun

Standard

We came home to stay with my Dad while my husband went to Afghanistan and among the things in my daughters room here was this:
1

I asked my Dad if he would mind if I re-did it and he agreed I was good to go, So I procrastinated for about 2 months, because my time is pretty limited these days between mommy, cook, seeing specialists, and going to photography school, but then I finally got around to it, mostly because I couldn’t stand seeing it in original for anymore

I peeled off all of the weird wall paper
did a tiny bit of sanding(I hate sanding so do my best to avoid it)
Painted the top with Martha Stewart Chalkboard Paint
let dry for an hour, repainted, let dry an hour, repainted
Painted the sides with acrylic paint(2 coats)
Let the table dry for 24 hours
rubbed the top with chalk, to cure it and then wiped it off

And ended up with this:

C, A, and I have been coloring on it with chalk for 2 months now and it always wipes clean, It is a lot of fun and looks better, so if you have an ugly table and a munchkin that like drawing, I totally recommend this

Total cost for project was 8.99
