Today’s thrift store makeover is a throwback to that time in 2014 that Bikeman and I had a great garage sale morning and came home with a Jeep-load of furniture, including three tables. One became this amazing chalkboard coffee table.

Chalkboard Coffee Table
You saw the first chalkboard top table here. I painted it the same color, CeCe Caldwell’s Memphis Blue, and added a chalkboard top like this, too.
I shared the second table with you last week. I painted it with CeCe’s Vintage White, then decided to keep it.
These photos are of the last table that I shared on Instagram. It was pretty beat up and the little ornamental wood brackets in the corners were all a little loose. Bikeman came to my rescue with some gorilla glue and C-clamps. Didn’t take long at all to fix that little problem and now they don’t wiggle at all.
Then I put one coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Memphis Blue (my current favorite color) then three thin coats of chalkboard paint on the top, wet distressed, and waxed the blue parts. Now it’s a beautiful chalkboard coffee table.
Here’s the before and after photos of the chalkboard coffee table.
Here it is in my space at Treasure Island Flea. A little girl completely fell in love with it. It went home with her to be her crafting table! She was so happy! That was a good day at TIF… almost EVERYTHING in this photo sold. If you’d like to know where we’ll be selling sign up for our jewelry newsletter.
