We've started homeschooling at our house. Our oldest is only three, so it isn't exactly rigorous. I wanted to make him a fun workspace. But I didn't want to spend much money.

We decided on a chalkboard top. I had some chalkboard spray paint on hand, so I used it.
This is how I masked the desk:
Of course, I had some problem spots to sand and fix. When you paint outside, stuff blows onto your work and gets stuck! Bummer.
Who wouldn't love drawing on a desk?
I really love these little buckets. They are from Target. I would've bought more, but these were the very last two left in the whole store!
