I know I took a before of this table but alas, it has hidden away from me one one of my many SD cards or folders on the computer. I try to be organized with my photos, but alas. Organization and Kammy don't go well together. So I found this one, with me and "Neighbor Grandpa" - the day we went and cleared out all the remaining free stuff from the Jackson Resale Factory minutes before they closed their doors. Sniffle, sniffle. Boy, that was a fun day though. It was one of those old tables out of a kindergarten classroom with the grayish colored formica top. I'm sure many a kid ate paste at this table and wiped boogers on the bottom. But since it was free, of course I brought it home!
It took SEVERAL coats of chalkboard paint to cover, and I had to let it cure a long time because it scratched off easy. But now I've coated it several times and let it cure a long time and it is finally holding up well!
Here's my homemade chalkboard paint recipe:
3-4 tablespoons Plaster of Paris
dissolve in a few tablespoons of hot water
add about a cup of black paint and stir until smooth.
I wrote Ty a little note on it, and my little Honey wrote one back:
It's usually covered in jars of caterpillars, frogs, moths, baby turtles, and anything that moves and he can catch!
