I am so done with rectangular placemats on my round kitchen table. It drives me nuts. Just NUTS. But a standard issue round tablecloth is a no-go either with my two jumping bean boys who would most certainly rip the thing off, dinner plates included, the first minute I put in on. But a chalkcloth tabletop? I could get behind that.
Voila! Table covering and kid distraction all rolled into one.
