Chalkboard Coffee Table

I picked up this coffee table on Craig’s List and loved the shape of the bottom of it. But it wasn’t until picking it up that I realized the top of it was just a boring laminate top. Of course they didn’t advertise that the top was just laminate.

I was about to just re-list it again on Craig’s List, but thought I may as well paint the laminate top with chalkboard paint and see if it was any better. And I love it.

I just love what a bit of paint can do in transforming a piece.
