{ chalkboard play table }

Ever since I pinned this
a very long time ago
I've been longing for the time when the Snake would be able to sit at a table to color, draw, 
or, of course, play cars on road drawn on a chalk-top table. 

The time was finally here so I started looking out for a table at local thrift shops.
and I found it!!
A whole set with chairs included for $8!

This is what the table looked like but I forgot to get pictures of the chairs. 
Silly. Silly.

After a coat of Valspar aqua spray paint from Lowes (two cans for $4 each)
and two coats on the table top with chalkboard paint from AC Moore ($14 without coupon)
oh and a few touch ups

I am delighted with the Snake's own chalkboard top play table.

He loves to sit to draw on it with chalk
or color with crayons on paper
or eat a snack while watching a show
or play cars when I draw a road on it! 

He's very serious about chalk as you can see.
But for reals, it's been a great addition to our play room!
