today’s final before & after (stay tuned for “we like it wild” next!) comes from kate leary of mi piace kate design. kate and her partner recently moved to san francisco and have been trying to blend together their two very different design aesthetics. they found this wood table on craigslist for $75 and decided they could upgrade it to fit both of their personal styles.

after sanding and priming the table, they added two coats of custom chalkboard paint and waited 3 days for the paint to cure. after the curing process was done, they were left with a fun, interactive dining table that they “can’t stop using and playing with!” the total cost? just over $100. great work you two!
