My girls love chalk and since we live in a cold climate it’s nice to have a chalkboard inside. I found this coffee table at Goodwill for $4! It was pretty beat up so perfect for a play table. I also bought two cheap plastic stools. To see my quick improvement on the stools click here.First we sanded the top since that was the only area that was getting painted. It didn’t need a lot of sanding since it was pretty rough. We used 100 grit paper.
Now it’s time to paint. I didn’t prime it, I just did an extra coat since I wasn’t concerned anything would bleed through. Use long back and forth strokes with thin coats. I did three coats waiting an hour between (that’s what Rust Oleum suggested).
