The kids got this great wooden table and chairs for Christmas. They have really enjoyed it. The other day I was looking at a Real Simple article on organizing clutter and saw a little chalkboard table sitting in the corner of the kitchen in one of the pictures. It had nothing to do with the article, but it caught my attention. I immediately knew I wanted to recreate that table with the little table we have. I've been curious about chalkboard paint for a while, just never ventured out to give it a try.
So here it goes.
Oh and while I was painting it on the stove top, I had another revelation.
I have a very small kitchen. We entertain a lot. Because of our limited table space I often have to serve our guest buffet style from the kitchen counter. There is just very limited space. I've often said I needed a butcher block or some kind of board to put over the sink to create more counter space when we are serving food. This little table is a fold up table and fits perfectly over the kitchen sink. So next time I need a little extra counter space I have the perfect solution... as long as kids are not using it to actually eat at.
