Before and After: Giant Whiteboard Table

Before and After: Giant Whiteboard Table

Ohdeedoh reader Amanda loved the bones of her old kitchen table, but she wasn't such a fan of the table's finish. When its age started to really show, and the cracks and peeling finish got to be too much, Amanda took a bold step. Rather than relegate the table to the basement or the alley, she got a can of whiteboard paint and turned her humble table into an awesome gigantic whiteboard for her kids to doodle on while waiting for meals. See the transformation after the jump...

Amanda first primed the table, then used a foam roller to apply whiteboard paint on the table top. She painted the table legs a deep espresso to match her chairs. She tells us:

The whiteboard paint dries really hard and gives a great scrubbable surface but also amuses the children as well. We keep a bucket of whiteboard markers on it now and the kids can doodle while they're waiting for dinner.
