1. Find old table.
2. Sand it.
3. Clean it.
4. Polish it with plegde. (I did this because the wood I had was super dry and I new the paint would take extra coats if I didnt.) If your wood is not dry, you can skip this step.
4. I used some cheap large paint brushes from Micheals and acrylic paint. The top coat is Martha Stewarts chalkboard paint, I thought this would be fun to write notesback and forth.
5. Paint with whatever colors you like, I recommend a warm, sunny day and leave it to sit outside until dry. Mine took about a half a day.
6. Then place in room and start writing on it with chalk! Such a fun piece!
Let me know your thoughts and how it works for you!
