Before & After: Chalkboard Dining Table

This is such a clever way to refurbish an old dining room table. Plus, so much fun for kids (and dinner guests!) — no crayons and placemats required! Kate Leary of Mi Piace Kate Design shared this Before & After with Design Sponge in August after a great Craigslist find up in San Francisco. It’s so classy! The structure of the table is already there — but the bleached wood look had to go.

A bit of priming, chalkboard paint and a Saturday afternoon — and voila, a beautiful table that’s fun for everyone! I love the chairs, too. It adds that modern edge to tie the piece into the rest of the house.

Supplies
*Dining room table
*Sandpaper
*Primer
*Chalkboard paint
*Paint brushes

1. Sand the entire table so you have an even surface to work with — this is especially necessary for older finds.

2. Prime the table with one coat of a basic indoor primer.

3. Add two coats of custom chalkboard paint and wait 3 days for the paint to cure.

And now you have a fun, interactive dining table that Kate says they just “can’t stop using and playing with!” The total cost? just over $100 (table was $75). So neat!
