I know my blogging has been sporadic at best for the last 2 weeks.

I am blaming it on my pictures loading sideways on every post I attempted.

I thought I was getting close to loosing my salvation, so I backed off posting.  HA!

I bought 2 tables like this one from a friend this spring.  They were old and rough, but solid with great bones!

I decided to make them both into chalkboard tables.  I finished the bottoms of both of them first.

Then, I primed the tops dark. I LOVE to use Heirloom Tradition’s Black Bean chalk-type paint on all my black chalkboards. 

Followed my several coats of chalkboard paint and then I hot glued “chalk holders” to the side of each table.

This ‘lil guy was almost cute enough to keep at the end of my hallway……

But, I painted it with the intention of giving it as a donation to an auction at a friend’s school.

Notice the self portrait next to my brochures. I am no Picasso…..but the big, curly hair is clearly me!

The green one was super adorable….

This shade of green just looked amazing with the undertones of the wood.

I ended up giving this table back to the person I got them both from.  It had originally been his mother’s who just recently passed away.  When I heard he loved the green table, it was a done deal for me.

So both of my chalkboard tables were given away…….one to a preschool and one to a friend.

It isn’t always about selling stuff. Sometimes it just feels good to share the talent we have been given.

  • They both turned out great and God will bless you for being so giving! I know it’s probably a no no but was just wondering how everything is going on your adoption journey? Should I keep praying for your adoption? Should I butt out?

    Love both of your tables and it sounds like each of them ended up where they were needed. I am sorry that you were dealing with tech issues, they can drive you crazy.
