A few weeks ago, I posted about the tall entry table I made using two different coffee tables. After I had completed that project, I still had the top of the coffee table that I used the legs from. My husband was ready to take it to the landfill but I kept looking at it and thinking to myself that there must be something I can do with just the table top. The table top was flat and had a really nice trim that curved upwards like a giant frame. I noticed that the decorative piece on the bottom of the table top was only screwed in a few places. So, I decided to pull the trim decorative piece off that had previously covered the legs and to my surprise it looked like a giant frame! Now I just needed to decided what would fill into the center. I love the chalkboard trend that is happening right now and I knew this would be a perfect and inexpensive way to makeover the coffee table top. I taped off the frame / trim of the table and then used the chalkboard spray paint to paint the center wood piece of the table. I did about 3 coats to make sure the wood was covered really well. After the chalkboard paint was completely dry I covered and taped the center, leaving the wood trim or frame out. I painted the trim white using some leftover house paint that I had on hand. This was such a simple project it came together in a few hours with drying time.
I now have this giant chalkboard displayed on my front porch year round. I often change out the saying for each month or holiday.
