Re: Has anyone panted their table edges?

What about using a tape instead? Paint will scrape off, of course so will
tape, but much easier to put back on. I am constantly annoyed with my
students as I have large colored "dots" (about 6" diameter) taped at each
student's work space. The dots correspond to the job chart. Anyway, they
are taped to the table with heavy duty clear packing tape....it never
fails....kids pick at the tape with their fingers, pencils, scissors....then
rip the paper...I have tried everything....

BUT!!! Next year, I am purchasing 1/16" clear acrylic sheets with rounded
edges, taping them to the table tops with double sided carpet tape. Anything
I want on the table (colored dots, bilingual labels, etc.) will go under the
acrylic! TaDA!!!! Also the acrylic will be much easier to clean than my
table tops.

I don't know if this helps...but it always helps to vent! haha
