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.
Oil Drip Pan Chalkboards! Spray prime the drip pans with gray primer, and then use latex chalkboard paint. Tape a border around the edge of the drip pan so it will create a 'frame' of sorts. Hang the boards/pans using 3M Command Strips (4 medium sized ones did the trick).
