Then want no more this simple, affordable table is perfect for you and the same method can be adapted for almost any piece of furniture.
This Instructable is a restoration, of sorts, on an old table which was saved from the going to the landfill.
Step 1: What You Will Need
You will need:
Paint, any it's personal personal preferance here, I chose chalkboard black so it could be drawn on in chalk
Sandpaper, I find 100 grit is perfect
All the usual gear for painting ( cleaning fluid, newspaper to keep things clean etc)
A donor piece of furniture or you could make your own
Cans , I can't really be exact here as no two will be the same but I ended up using ten, the table will look a lot better with a wide range of colours so I felt Barr cans were perfect as all the different flavours have a different bright colour
Adhesive of some sort, I used a fast setting tube of adhesive which is used with a caulking gun, but almost anything would work
Scissors, a blade or a tin opener, whatever you choose to use to cut your cans
Step 2: Getting Started
Please do not miss the sanding out, it is vital or the paint will not apply properly.
So after you've sanded your piece it should look something like it does in the first picture of this screen.
As you can see I never bothered sanding the top as the cans would be covering it.
