Take a plastic children's table and turn it into a fancy spot for kids who dine

Caroline scored a plastic kid's table at a yard sale a few months ago. She kept it in her kitchen for her son's snack time, but recently decided she was tired of the faded red, yellow, and teal and wanted to chic the table up a bit.

With fabric, a can or two of spray paint, and a vinyl covering to make cleaning up easy, she altered the table into a damask dream explosion. You can follow along the step-by-step process at her blog!

  1. Oh my gosh, how COOL, that is fancy, classic, and still multi-functional! I want to try that! Ill post my picture, so everyone can see. Ill browse craigslist and see if I can find a picnic table!

  2. That is awesome. I wish I had enough room in my kitchen for a dedicated kids table. As it is we just have a folding craft table we pull out when everyone is eating dinner at once.

  3. I have that exact table outside currently being used as a table to hold our plants. It is in major need of sprucing up and this might be a great idea to start with!

  4. Thanks for the link to my blog! You put Aussie mom if you mean Australian I'm not I live in Utah USA but if you mean Awesome I'll take it ­čÖé Thanks again and I would love to see it if anyone does it!
