recover a kids table

well…wouldn’t you know it. I’m actually using my glue gun. I was beginning to think that i should change my name to

a girl and a bunch of random craft crap

definitely not as catchy.

anyways. i’m recovering my kids card table. recover an old kids' table

here’s the before…we aren’t over the princess stage yet table before

but we are definitely over the gross, stainedness.

(we’ve painting our fingers on here one to many times)

PicMonkey Collage kids table

and while at joanns…i noticed this fun roll of vinyl (by the vinyl tablecloths)

and i was itching to make something with it..and this was PERFECT! it’s easy to wipe up and clean up and it’s pretty durable.

but since it was slightly see-through…i added a thin white muslin underneath

make sure that you don’t add too much padding. cause if you do, and your kids try to draw on it.. they are going to poke holes through it.

and then i just placed a square of polka dot over it and hot glued it underneath

and since the chair covers were gone (if they were still intact i would have just hot glued some polka dots over it)

i made a cover…it was  rectangle of black fleece that i folded over the back and pinned down so i knew where to sew. then i just added a strip of polka dot to the front. photo 3 (19)
