Izzy and Ethan got a table from Ikea a couple of years ago. I painted the bare wood...
Here's how it looked for a while. You really can't see in this photo but the top had taken a bit of a battering! It was covered in pen and paint and the varnish had begun to yellow.
So I sanded it down and gave it a couple of coats of chalkboard paint.
The verdict? They love it! :) Which makes me happy too!
And I love that I can label it. The possibilities!
I can assure you that you'll see it featuring in the kids' upcoming parties. We have two this month.
Here it is in it's usual place. Next to my chalkboard.
Wondering why the photo is so tightly cropped?
If only the rest of my kitchen was so nicely organised as the little table.
Oh, and in the top right there's some green things perched on my desk? Those are the party favours for Ethan's birthday! I'm very excited!
Can you tell what they are yet? :)
More photos to come soon!
But right now I'm just enjoying a successful revamp.
If you read this post you'll know why I'm so proud of this picture of Uncle Ben's house!
P.S. I still have half a tin of chalkboard paint left...any ideas what should be next?
