IKEA Hack: Lack Chalk Table

We've seen all kinds of IKEA hacks and have been impressed by all. Our favorite ones are those that don't require us to make an IKEA run for supplies but rather uses up something we already have (and maybe wished we didn't). We're liking this terrific makeover of a standard IKEA Lack side table over at DaddyTypes.

It looks like it was simple enough to accomplish - chalkboard paint on the surface and a cutout in the middle for a bowl to hold the chalk (a la Oeuf). But Greg of DaddyTypes warns of his failed attempt at doing something similar. The hard part seems to be getting the chalkboard paint to adhere to the surface and Greg suggests either a good primer or sanding.

Anyone pulled this off successfully?
