Thrifty Teacher Finds {with Stephany from Primary Possibilities}

I found this table at a local thrift store for just 5 bucks!  As soon as I spotted it I knew it was the perfect size and height for primary kiddos who were working on the floor.  It's light enough that kids can move it to wherever they are working, high enough off the floor they can fit their legs under it, and just the right size to do sorts or work with manipulatives. 

I started by spray painting the legs to match the color of my room.

I was brainstorming how I would finish the top when I realized I could make it even more useful with a whiteboard top!  I headed over to Lowe's where you can purchase whiteboard and they will cut it to whatever size you need!  The boards are around $10 and even after cutting the top of the table, I have plenty left over for a few more projects this summer!  All you need is some heavy duty glue to adhere the whiteboard to the top of the table.

You can make almost any table top or surface a useful, easy to clean whiteboard surface with a little glue and just $10!
