Repurpose a round accent table by adding a chalkboard tabletop of Clear Chalkboard Coating.


    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • sandpaper
    • chalk
    • 1" wide sponge brushes
    • small table (round or square)
    • soap and water


    1. Thoroughly clean the table with soap and water and let dry. Lightly rub the tabletop with sandpaper if it is too shiny or sleek.
    2. Paint the tabletop Desert Turquoise using a 1" sponge brush. Let dry completely. Add a second or even third coat if needed to make the surface completely opaque.
    3. Using a 1" sponge brush, paint the tabletop with Clear Chalkboard Coating using vertical strokes. Let dry one hour.
    4. Paint over the tabletop again with Clear Chalkboard Coating and the 1" sponge brush, using horizontal stokes. Let the tabletop cure for 24 hours.
    5. Rub a little chalk on the tabletop surface to condition before drawing.
