  • The table that I have used is from a lid of a wine box. So the first thing you have to do is cut it to the desired size: 25 x 17 centimeters.
  • With the help of pliers remove the staples or nails from the sheet.

  • Then smooth the surface, to do this Pass the sandpaper until there are no impurities.
  • Make a guard with the masking tape or as a painter. In my case I have passed it from corner to corner, making a diagonal.

  • Apply the chalk paint. I have chosen the mint color because I like the contrast with the wood, but you can put the color that you like the most or it combines with the room. You can also paint it with acrylic.
  • Then remove the masking tape and you will have a very defined line.

  • Find a beautiful phrase that goes with you, that motivates you and with paint and a brush write in the table. If you want, you can do it first in pencil.
  • Make two holes on top of the wood veneer.

  • Pass the rope through them, finishing with a double knot. That will be enough to hang it.
  • If you fancy a vintage effect: sponge with a little brown ink, that will give it an aged effect.
