Blessing #179 - Chalkboard Table

A few weeks ago, my friend and I wanted to get together.  Due to my love of projects, I suggested we have a project work day at her house.  She could pick projects she wanted to get done and we would work on them.  It's simple, but my kind of fun.

One of my favorite projects we worked on was this table.

I love the story behind this table! When my friend needed a new coffee table, she bought this one online on a Craigslist type site.  When she looked at the pictures, the table looked great.  She didn't think to pay attention to the dimensions.  Her husband picked up the table and brought it home, and it is tiny! It's not really tall enough to be a side table, but not large enough to be a coffee table. When my friend showed it to me, she said, "Here is my mistake."

Being the genius she is, she decided to make lemonade out of lemons, and use this table in her kids play area.  One project day later, and here it is.....

My friend put chalk and markers in mason jars, and spray painted the lids with chalkboard paint.  You know me, I just had to dress up the drawer.

I think my favorite thing about this project is that my friend turned a mistake into something that her family loves.

 You can really tell in this picture just how small this table is.

A few days later she sent me a picture of some of their artwork.  This table is not a mistake anymore. It's a masterpiece.
