I’ve had this Target bent ply coffee table forever, it seems like. It has moved with me from my house in the Estates, to my adorable single girl rental & now to the grown up villa that I share with Andy. Below is right when I moved into the rental. I didn’t even have a place for the TV, until I decided to use the coffee table for it. You can see in this pic it is a little worse for wear.
Here it is in our villa – it was used again to support the TV till we bought a Besta console to replace it. (We picked the walnut effect light grey color to contrast with my black-brown office setup. You’ll see it soon!) Then it was back to being a coffee table.
Andy came up with the idea to paint it with chalkboard paint & we chose the bright orange color to coordinate with my Vertigo poster that hangs in the dining area. Another thing I keep dragging with me everywhere!
After doing a bunch of sanding he rolled the chalkboard paint on the top section. Then set up a paint booth in the garage to prime & paint the bottom.
It came out pretty great! It gives a nice pop of color while giving the kids a place to express themselves with chalk.
We had a party at our place & the kids christened it for us. I’d be tempted to use it as a cheese board if we ever have a party sans kids & pets haha! It’s also a great spot to stash the toy box & a cozy blanket.
