Do you have one of those ubiquitous seen-better-days midcentury-ish side tables kicking around? Take a cue from Louise (whose daughters' beautiful room we toured a while back) and give it new life with a fresh paint job, including a nifty chalkboard surface.

Before you start painting, you'll first want to give the table a light sanding, followed by a quick coat of primer. Louise has used white paint here, but we keep picturing versions in turquoise and orange. What color would you use?

See more of Louise's photography on Flickr, and be sure to check out the vintage and upcycled wares in her Etsy shop, Pour toujours.
