In order to keep it playful for the children and contemporary for the adults, Karen uses a chalkboard paint for the tabletop. To achieve a realistic chalkboard finish, apply several coats of the paint. Karn uses a permanent white marker to apply an image from the family's favorite book and some fun sayings onto the tabletop.
