Chalkboard Coffee Table

Chalkboard Coffee Table

The chalkboard table for kids was a hit from the moment Offi introduced it years ago. It has spawned a sea of copycats and look-a-likes. But this version is our favorite.

The table is a mid-century modern (perhaps, inspired) coffee table, beautiful on its own and a great height for young ones. A simple coat of chalkboard paint turns a modern table to a one-of-a-kind center piece in a child-friendly room. Years ago I bought a similar looking table at our local flea market. It's not in perfect condition and I've thought about refinishing it for years but now that I have children, the thought of a thick coat of dark chalkboard paint is an easy and stylish alternative to refinishing.

We spotted this table on the website of Mark Tuckey, a design and furniture workshop in Australia. Visit their website to see more.
