Creative Ideas For Your Kids Table
A couple of years ago I bought a kids table and chair set at a yard sale for $5 with the intention of refinishing it. It sat in the basement, as good intentions sometimes do, until recently when I pulled it out to sell at my yard sale.
I thought, "who's kidding who...I'll never get to that project, I might as well get a few bucks for it." I just didn't have the motivation to invest the time needed for the job.
As I was rummaging around my basement, I saw the can of black chalkboard paint from my recent "pumpkin project" and noticed the picture of a kid's table on the front of the can.
Suddenly, I was inspired and highly motivated to paint the top of the table with chalkboard paint.
I immediately went from not wanting to be bothered... to wanting it done yesterday!
I lightly sanded the table and both chairs.
I Spray painted the table and both chairs with primer.
I Wrapped some paper around the bottom (the legs) of the table, and spray painted the top with chalkboard paint...giving it three coats.
I Painted the table legs and the two chairs with latex paint.
It came out great!
And...the boys love it!
No time to paint before the holidays....
Here's a fast and easy way to DRESS UP THE KIDS' TABLE
A king size pillow case is the perfect size to cover these little chairs.
Use wire ribbon for a decorative bow to hold the cover in place.
An inexpensive plastic tablecloth cut in half and tied at the legs with matching ribbon completes the transformation.
