I was sick of the glass part of my coffee table never looking clean, part of what goes with owning dogs. If there was one smudge on the bottom of the glass it showed! So….to make things easier for me, I decided to spray paint the glass with a few coats of Rustoleum Chalkboard Paint. It’s fun and reversible!!
