Whatever Wednesday: Family Game Night Table

A couple weeks back, there was a link in my Motivate Me Monday party that I loved. A little chalkboard table. Well that weekend, I went out garage sale-ing and went looking for a cute end table. Well I scored and found this great table for only $3!
So I distressed it to match this table and then painted the top of it with chalk board paint.
Well after I put it in between my two couches, I decided that it was too small for the space. So I went garage sale-ing again and found this end table for $3. It wasn't as cute but it fit the space perfectly.

So using the same technique as the other one, I painted it. So now we can keep score on two tables :)

These are great for family night when we are playing games. They are also great to just let my kids draw on them :)

That really is a great idea! Everyone knows that with kids involved, score has to be kept! :-)

Just hopped over from Sew Much Ado. I want one of these! This is such a cool idea. We're always scrambling for notepads to keep score on. Thanks for the awesome idea!
