If you have been following my blog, you will remember my red and white bistro chairs. Well, when I bought them at the flea market, they came as a 3-piece set. I didn't want the table, because it was wobbly and ready to fall over, but the vendor said he didn't want to drag the table home with him so I saw that as a sign. No, I mean a real sign. What else was I going to do with it? It was a free surface to paint something on. So I copied a chalkboard I saw at The Paris Market in Savannah (which by the way looks way better than mine, but what do you want for free?)
My husband discarded the wobbly base, and painted the table with chalkboard paint. I came along with my acrylic paint and put my wording on it so that makes this a permanent menu board. I confess it was a little hard to map my words in with the slats of the table, but over all I think it is fine. Maybe I will put some coat hooks on the sides for hanging aprons.
You can see from the way the table started out, most people, including my husband, would have trashed it. I, on the other hand, like to create from nothing.
