The people of Pinterest are totally in love with DIY chalk boards. Seriously just type in "chalk board" in Pinterest and you will get a ton of envy-worthy ideas.
Now that baby boy is almost 10 months old we are finally getting his room the way I want it. (We move when he was six weeks old. It threw me for a loop.)
His room is actually one of two living rooms in this old house. And it's the only room with carpet. So their is a lot of room to play with.
I wanted to make him a chalkboard table that, when he got older, he could draw on the table, learn to write his name, draw little roads for his trucks.
It was so simple.
I took an extra table I "inherited" from my great aunt.
Then I just took some chalkboard paint that I purchased really cheap at Lowes and I painted away.
It took 10 minutes and I think it looks like a sleek black table!
