Clever use for chalkboard paint. Everyday #80

I'm so inspired by this clever idea I found in Southern Living -- to cover my kitchen table in chalkboard paint. I already use kitchen cloths as slipcovers.

(What? The kids are messy!)

Our kitchen table is all scratched up, so I'm seriously considering it. I'm imagining the kids practicing their letters as they do their homework. Do you think this is a crazy idea?
