this is sara's idea for a chalk board table and storage area for her daughter.
"we have 3 of those ikea bins holding toys and blankets in our daughter's room. that was also the only spot we had for a kid's table in our small house.
so we got a couple benjamin stools (the bins fit underneath really well), and had a piece of birch plywood cut at our local lumberyard. we drilled 4 holes, and fastened the top to the stools with nuts and bolts. we painted one side with chalk board paint, and finished the other side (and the edges). when our daughter is bored with one side, we can flip it over. and it fits perfectly in her room."
