End of the Year Gift for the Teacher

 - by Stacey

This is what I did for the teacher and her little ones for the end of year gift. I toke all 8 tables home and cleaned them, then I went and bought some chalk board paint, paint roller and a paint tray from the hardware store. Paint one coat of chalk board paint on them and let dry for 1 day, then paint a second coat on them and let that coat dry for one more day. After three days you can go ahead and write on them. All you need to clean them off with after you write on them is a rag and water. Make sure you read the chalk board paint can for instructions. The tables turned out awesome and the kids are enjoying them.

Kid’s Table and Chairs with Chalk Board Paint

 - by Stacey

This is now the kid’s new table and chairs after tightening the screws and a fresh paint job. I used chalk board paint from the hardware store. All you need to do is get chalk board paint, a paint tray to hold the paint, a roller to roll it on and one sponge paint brush for all the hard to reach areas. Go ahead and paint, don’t forget to read the instructions on the back of the paint can. The table and chairs look so neat now and it will be good for another 7 years or until the kids stop using it. I also used the chalk board paint on our end tables that was already black and was in need of a new paint job. So we just put black chalk board paint on them and the kids are having fun writing on all the tables in the house.
