Repurposed Play Table

Guess who has a new spot to call her own?

Following up on this post, here is the final result. I absolutely love it and I think she likes it too! I plan on making lots of memories right here.

I admit, I was a little leery to mess with the table.  I'm not usually in the habit of attacking pieces of furniture with a circular saw!  But I'm so happy I went ahead and re-purposed the existing lovely but damaged table it into something we can really use everyday.  The damage is still there of course but thats okay.

As you can see, I cut the legs down, painted the whole thing and re-glued the shorter legs back on. Now we have a great space to play with Agatha that looks beautiful and fits right into our living room too too.

I decided to go with the chalk paint mostly because there was a sample pack sitting in my closet that I was eager to try (thanks Suite Pieces!). I love the dead matte finish and the quick drying time that let me complete this whole project in a few hours! (I haven't waxed it yet but I'll get around to it soon.)

Yea for projects that go just the way I plan.

details: table painted with a sample pot of Annie Sloan duck egg blue (top) and pure white (apron and base), chairs are Ikea Critter (which I will likely swap out but these will do well for now)

  4. Looks absolutely lovely! I really do love the shape and it's the perfect balance between being a kid's table, yet refined.

  5. Adorable!! The table and the baby! Yes, you will have many memories crafting and coloring there. Our little table is in our kitchen and will be missed as our little is getting to big for it.

  6. So sweet! May I suggest putting two IKEA Agen chairs around it? I saw the cutest tutorial on how to freshen them up a bit here:

  19. Oh, my lands! I just found your blog, quite by accident, and I totally have your kitchen pinned on Pinterest! I have sort of sinned and coveted that kitchen of yours for a while now, and then... boom! I find the blog of the girl who actually owns that kitchen, and this is what I have to say: Your glossy, stainless steel fridge with NO FINGERPRINTS, SMEARS OR SMUDGES had me at Hello. It may be the very reason I pinned it! (Yes, welcome to my crazy; I swoon for refrigerators that aren't covered in smudges and fingerprints, like my stainless steel beast is.) And this little table that you painted is darling, and do you think we could get together for coffee sometime, so that you could ask me questions like... oh, I don't know... "How about I redecorate your house for you?!" And I would stand up and clap and yell out, "Yes! Bravo!" Because I'm pretty sure that your style is exactly my style, only I didn't get the spiritual gift of decorating, as evidenced by the ugly throw pillows on my sofa from Walmart. Have a happy Tuesday.
