Kid's Card Table Makeover

I bought one of those card table's for kids several years ago.  Having gone through 6 grandchildren, it was it need of an update.  I took off the legs & recovered the cheap, flimsy top with a chalkboard fabric. The whole project cost me zero dollars because I had leftover chalk cloth.  I would've used a staple gun but ours was broken, so I used  good, old duct tape underneath the table,  to hold down the new top.  I like the way it turned out & the kids like it, too!!  It's fun to leave messages or just to draw pictures.  A source for the chalk cloth is here at

The old, marked-up table

The old table, all made-over!

  3. What a GREAT idea!! SOphia wants us to use this kind of paint in her playroom, it is cool that is for sure.

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog. The card table makeover is a very clever idea!

  5. The table looks so nice! After working at school all my life you would think I would know about chalkboard fabric, but I didn't! Your duct tape reminds me of our local radio DJ, he said that when he was growing up his dad believed in the power of duct tape and his mother believed in the power of vicks vapor rub. He suggested that a really powerful product would be a combination of the two - vapor tape or maybe Duct rub! I had to laugh when you said you had used the duct tape on your pretty table! Powerful stuff!

  6. How fun is that even for adults. Great idea. Love chalkboard paint.
