Ok, I have a confession to make…I can’t let things just be, it’s why I usually buy food already prepared but then add a few extra ingredients to it or how I tweak almost everything for my home to make it a little more personal. Sometimes the transformation is time consuming but mostly it’s quick and easy like Cooper’s play table.
I wanted a play table for Cooper’s nursery and was having a hard time finding something I liked so I settled (another admission I settle a lot due to being inpatient) and bought the aspen white table from Target.
There is nothing wrong with the table it’s perfectly fine but like I mentioned I can’t seem to let things just be. First things first I got rid of the chairs and replaced them with some vintage school chairs I bought from a small local antique store, before I was even pregnant with Cooper! (It’s why I always say if you fall in love with something buy it, things always have a way of working out.)
I could’ve just been done just replacing the chairs but decided to do one more thing.
Yep, that’s right the never ending won’t go away chalkboard paint trend.
I love black chalkboard paint even if you couldn’t write on it I love the way it looks. I like the flat darkness of it! It was easy, first I primed the table with a coat of Kilz and then I painted 3 coats of chalkboard paint to the surface of the table.
I think painting the table top black helps tie it in with the dresser don’t you think?
Anyone else use chalkboard paint in an unexpected place?
