I snagged this little wooden end table from Goodwill for $2.95.
It was a bit dinged up, but solid and sturdy, so I figured I could fancy it up for my son's bedroom. Since he isn't being rocked much anymore (well he IS almost 4!) we decided to ditch the rocker for a table for legos, car ramps, and train tracks.
I used my homemade black chalk paint and distressed the edges.
Then I just used some gray paint and stencils to create a unique tabletop design.
It was easy and if (when) it gets more dinged up, I won't mind because it was easy and inexpensive.
