Addicted to Chalkboard Paint

I recently came across this article on Kasi Good's blog, and liked it so much, I asked if we could share it here! So here it is, a cool and functional makeover for your Lifetime Table:

"I am addicted to chalkboard paint...
It's true. We had the kids computer and art stuff on this hideous lifetime table. It was covered in paint, since I routinely use it for painting furniture or picture frames or whatever else I decide to slather paint on. I decided it couldn't get any worse, so I rolled on a couple coats of black chalkboard paint!

Now, I may as well be honest and tell you that it's not going to last forever. I can envision one of them realizing that if they try hard enough they can scratch the paint off and that will be the end of it. But it will be fun while it lasts.

EDIT: I ended up stripping off the paint so that I could put down a plastic primer first. So I sprayed on the plastic primer, sanded the table, and then rolled on the chalkboard paint. It is much more permanent now! I love, love, love it! When I am at the computer and I need to jot something down I can just grab a piece of chalk and write on the table! Very handy!"

Check out the article on Kasi's blog here. And remember, if you're Lifetime table is 'hideous' chalkboard paint isn't the only solution, all those paint marks and scuffs are easy to clean off too! Check out official table cleaning tips at Lifetime.com.

What a clever way to leave messages and reminders.This might be the best thing since Post-It notes! Maybe whiteboard paint would be a good alternative for people who don't like chalk and the dust that comes with it. Looks like you're getting alot of use out of that table!

Oooh, cool idea.  And, Charly, I really like the idea of whiteboard paint...I didn't even know there was such a thing until you mentioned it.  How fun!

Win a Lifetime Round Picnic Table for Your Labor Day BBQ!
This giveaway has ended.Sadly, summer is almost over and Labor Day is just around the corner. Labor Day is officially a federal holiday and a day of rest created to recognize our country's workers. But, it seems it is more often recognized as a day to signify the last day of summer with one last hooroh. So, since most Labor Day celebrations traditionally include a picnic or BBQ, this month we're going to give away a Lifetime 44-Inch Round Picnic Table! The Lifetime 44-Inch Round Picnic Table offers a unique twist to the standard picnic table. And, yes, I mean that literally because the benches on this table twist, or rather swing, outward for easy seating access for up to six adults! This open frame design provides a stylish look and increases legroom. It also allows for wheelchair accessibility. Like all Lifetime tables, th...

The Newest Lifetime Shed Family Member
Im excited to talk about our new shed that we have been busy working on over the past few months. We have designed a new size with some fresh new features. Through customer research, we learned that you, our awesome consumers, like the width of our 8-foot wide family of sheds, but some of you just don't have the space for a deep shed like our 8x10 or 8x12.5. This new shed is 8 feet wide and 6 feet deep! The shed also has a new look with vertical siding and windows in the doors. It has corner trim to make the colors pop and look good in your yard. Weve also added a skylight that runs the full depth of the shed to allow natural light in so you can more easily see your stuff. Also, this new shed comes with shelving to help you organize your bug spray, weed killer, and whatever else you want to store. With our new design th...
