Ikea Chalkboard Table Hack!

 I can't believe I actually have time to blog this!! I completed this hack about a month ago, and am just getting around to this now!! Things are a little crazy over here!
 I have seen this hack around before, so I am definitely a little late in the game on this one, BUT it was my first time doing this hack, so I thought I would share!!

The best thing about this is that the table costs $19.99. Between that and the paints you need, you are looking at about $35.00 total for a really cute customized kids table!

First, start by ordering the table here. Or just go to the store if you are lucky enough to have one close by.
Once the package arrives take out all of the pieces and paint them!!

I found that I needed 2 coats of spray paint and about 3 coats of the chalkboard paint!

I bought 2 white hooks from Lowe's and attached them to the side.
The pails are from the dollar bin at Target!
That's it!!

Funny thing is that the first set they sent me was missing a piece so not only did they send me the piece but a whole new one?! What?! So now I am going to make a second one!! I think I am going to do it gold and pink (big shocker I know!)
