DIY - Ever-Changing Play Table



Roll the play from inside to outside with this ever-changing play table.

The addition of wheels and a fab chalkboard-painted top have made these under-bed drawers a perfect movable toy box to take from inside to out. The vintage child’s metal chair with its vibrant splash of colour offers a spot to sit and rest between games.

1.  Sand top of drawers with various grades of sandpaper. Apply two coats of Resene Blackboard Paint in black. (Add Resene Hot Weather Additive on hot summer days to extend working time of the paint for smooth brushstrokes and an even finish). Attach large wheels at each corner.

2.  We gave the chair a light sanding all over. We then used a wonderful gadget bought at Resene called the Colorpak Aerosol Spraygun. It has an attachment you fill with any Resene paint. This turns it into a spray can of any colour you choose. I used this to prime the chair with Resene Vinyl Etch adhesion primer (thinned to the recommended level).

Then we cleaned the Colorpak and sprayed with Resene Super Gloss Enamel in Resene Hullabaloo, from the Resene KidzColour range. This was thinned using Resene Thinner No. 9. The thinner helps the paint spray evenly. The result is a fabulous hardwearing gloss finish.
