Fold up Telephone Desk

We found this fold up wooden desk in a furniture warehouse that resells catalogue returns so it was a very good bargain. We needed somewhere for our phone and thought it would be great to have a chalk top on which to write messages.

Instructions

Sand the wood to make a key for the paint.

Cover the top of the table with some paper and spray the legs with copper paint.

When the legs are dry, paint the top of the table with blackboard paint.

Tips. The legs will take very little spray paint so there is enough left over if you decide to spray some other accessories such as flower pots or vases.
