Chalkboard Table

I had been looking for the perfect little table and chairs for a while.
I saw this set at Ikea...

It was cute but $65.00 was a little more than I wanted to spend...
and it needed a little more pizzazz!

Then I saw this cute little set on Craigslist for $25.00!
well, it seems like the only picture i could find was of the chair,
whenever i come across the set picture I'll add it!

it was a set of 2 chairs and a table, in a beige color with "carly" painted on the back of a chair.
and that picture was taken in the middle of a major garage clean out. 
don't judge the mess!

after 3 cans of Rustoleum White paint:
 taping off the top edges, draping the sides, and painting the top area with chalkboard paint.
it was turned into the perfect coloring surface for this cutie!
now he has a special space all his own.

::price list::
table and 2 chairs: $25
3 cans of white paint: $13
1 can of chalkboard paint: $4
:total: $42

and it's exactly what I wanted for him!
