STEP BY STEP –
Apply 2 coats of white acrylic undercoat to all top surfaces and edges of the two sheets of mdf. A mini roller should be used for this, and work in small sections to get even painting results.
With a long straight edge, draw a pencil line 24mm from edge all around. Tape 3 sides of table, both shorts sides and one long length edge. Ensure you tape right up to the edges in a straight line. Mark the centre of each board to create a centre line of the court. Once this is marked, apply the tape to the centre line, ensuring the tape is positioned an equal distance in the centre line marking so each side of the court is the same size. The same process has to be completed for the other mdf board.
Apply 2 coats of chalkboard paint to the areas that have been created as the sides of the court. The same process has to be completed for the other board.
Once dry, remove the masking tape.
Attach the piano hinge to the two table tennis tops that do not have a white line.
The top can now be placed onto the table that will support the top. The nett can then be attached to the sides of the table. The table is now completed and ready for use.
