OH MY GOSH. I have a little round table in my living room that's old and tattered because it was my great grandmothers and it's been through 3 generations lol. I could sand it and paint it a matte black then do the chalkboard on top. Fun idea for my already fun apartment.
HELLOOOO, What a "why-didn't I think of that" kind of idea. Put a wine or margarita glass in the middle of a large bowl for instant chip and dip set!.
