INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Thoroughly clean the table with soap and water and let dry. Lightly rub the tabletop with sandpaper if it is too shiny or sleek.
  2. Paint the tabletop Desert Turquoise using a 1" sponge brush. Let dry completely. Add a second or even third coat if needed to make the surface completely opaque.

HELPFUL HINTS

Do not allow standing liquid on the tabletop for long periods of time to avoid damaging the chalkboard finish.

Cleaning the tabletop between drawings with a damp paper towel or rag will not affect its finish.
