Bulletin Board Table Top

20 Mar

We had our kitchen table top sanded down so that it could be restained to a darker tone that my husband wanted. Sadly the person hired to do the job did not do it quite right. We were left with a rather rough surfaced table top.

Now we did not mind the looks, however it was effecting the functionality of it. Food often got stuck to the rough top. To solve the problem, we got a glass cut out for the table top.

It was only after awhile, it came to us that we could actually use the table top as a sort of bulletin board that will interest the whole family.

This is our very first display; the world.

So far it has been a conversation starter, question trigger, story board . . . and I guess the possibilities are endless from now on.

What we thought was a disaster, Allah inspired us make it into something beneficial.

    This is a wonderful idea. I think I would do this even if the tabletop did not have a bad finish. 🙂 It could be a wonderful learning tool for the family insha Allah.
