Back in March I posted about my $2 garage sale find, a kiddie table and a second hand store chair. I have been wanting to refinish them for a long time and finally, I did it!
I used some left over paint from this project and gave them a new clean look, and I think it makes a big difference!
I know I was the only one in my family who was annoyed by the baby blue chair. I love the color, but I don't have any baby blue colors on the entire first floor. It always looked out of place.
Now, the kids have a pretty place to draw and do some crafts. (They probably didn't care what color the chair was or that the paint on the table was peeling, but I did!)
I cut out a square with pinking scissors from oil cloth scrap to make a little coaster to put under the pencil mug.
Then, some treats for the little artists...
I already see scraches and colors from crayons... There were several times I wanted to say " Ahh!! Don't do that, you will ruin the table!" but I held my tongue. I really want them to enjoy the table and remember it as part of happy childhood memories.
So, I think I am going to make a table cloth or craft mat for the table out of oil cloth, wouldn't it be so cute?
