I have 2 of these filling space in my basement (who doesn't have these tables?):
|ikea lack table|
When I bought them they definitely filled a void and served a purpose. They are not serving that purpose anymore and if there's one thing I don't need its a side table. I have side tables a plenty. I may actually be subconsciously hoarding them (I mean you never know when you are gonna need a little side table, best to keep plenty handy - just in case - right???). So one of these tables, at least, needed a new life.
Get ready cause now I am gonna hit you with a little not-so-subtle foreshadowing...here goes, lets see if you can guess what I did...

Now, did you guess I was gonna turn it into a chalkboard table or did you think I was gonna work some real magic and turn it into a sideboard... Be honest... Sorry if you're disappointed - it is not a sideboard...
BTW - Holly at in the fun lane has a great tutorial on how to get a great looking chalkboard table, so I won't try to re-invent the wheel - just pop over to her site if you want a how-to. I must have been channeling her because this table has been on my to-do list for a while but only got around to it last week - and then what do I see on her blog??? I love it when I "channel" people with really good taste!
Anyway, at first I thought I would just paint the whole thing out in chalkboard paint but it just didn't seem to give it enough of a kick...
Back to the drawing board... Some number paper here, a little modge podge there and presto - a new table is born... or an old one is reborn...
So what do you think?
