Toddler Table Transformed


Here's a post just for fun-something a little outside of the box for me!  I have a passion for all things creative but the dilemma I run into these days is that I am a little short on time or money (or both, ha!) to make all the ideas that overflow my brain most of the time!

Recently (since becoming a "Pinterest-Addict"!) I saw this idea for a toddler table re-do and was inspired!


I paired this (above) idea up with more inspiration (below):


My daughter and I had picked out this fun material awhile ago and made some pillows out of it to tie together the colors in their bedroom: sage green, candy pink and bright pink.  



A few years ago, I had bought a table and two little chairs at Goodwill ($15 score!) and last summer I found two more wooden chairs (a bit larger but a good fit) at a garage sale ($2 each!) and painted the table white and the chairs brown.  But, after awhile, I felt this was rather...BORING!  It needed a COLOR REVIVAL!

So, I picked up some fun colors (brought my pillow along for a reference point) at Menards and spray-painted away on a sunny day....



EvaLee was pumped PINK was the new color of her chairs.


After they were dry, I glued some cute wooden flowers that I found at Hancock Fabric...



Kid tested, kid approved...



Finished product with my inspiration:


Total cost of the re-do (paint, flowers): $21!  Not too shabby...

Before...BORING!


And AFTER!  BAM!



Would love to hear about any projects you are working on too!  Happy painting...

Your tables and chairs look really good, professional and all. If I had toddlers I'd ask you to paint my table and chairs any day.

After this semester is over I want to make an old fashioned nurses hat with white starched cotton and two very thin ribbons in the colors of blue and yellow for my school colors. Then a year from May when I graduate I'll wear it.
