Chalkboard Kitchen Table Revisited

Today's post is an oldie but a goody. To this day this is one of my favorite projects. Before continuing with this blast from the past, let me say that when I do this project again (and I will), I will be sanding the table first. I recommend you do the same. 



My poor kitchen table. We got it as a wedding present over 6 years ago. In 6 years this loyal piece of furniture has been scratched, hot glued, Sharpied, painted on and had a bottle of nail polish spilled on it. With the exception of the Sharpie marks,  these injuries were caused by Yours Truly.


I have been on a serious chalkboard paint kick the last few weeks and decided it would be awesome to have a giant chalkboard as a kitchen table. My husband didn't like how dark it was, so I added a few light touches with antique white paint and now we have a very happy family.

Materials needed:
Latex chalkboard paint--I used Rustoleum because it didn't require a lot of prep work
Foam paint roller
A tarp to protect your work area
Antique white paint
A paint stamp--I used a fluer de lis
The common sense not to let your 3 year old bounce a ball anywhere near your work area. I make these mistakes so you don't have to!

Clean your table and let it dry. Paint your first coat and let it dry for at least 2 hours before applying the next coat. I did 3 coats.
Personalize your table with a stamp or stencil.

I'm really happy with how this turned out, and my kids think it is the coolest thing since Legos. :)
