I had a lot of fun refinishing this kids table! I spotted it at a thrift store and walked by it at first...made a loop and came back to take a better look.
I was thinking coffee table at first but the height was too high...then it hit me...it was the perfect size and shape for a kids play table.
It was pretty beat up and I knew I wanted to make it into something fun and unique. I ended up sanding down the entire top to the natural wood. I painted the apron and legs of the table in a soft grey and did some light distressing with my palm sander.
The table top got a few coats of chalk paint! Now it's okay for the kiddo's to draw on the table!
Be creative and make a town for your trucks or a perfect spot for a tea party!
I toned down the black top by wiping on some white chalk and rubbing it in with my hands to look like those good old fashioned chalkboards we used to have in school!
The table doesn't come with chairs...however I can scout out and refinish some if someone is interested.
If you want to find chairs on your own I sourced a few chair options. They have some great looking stuff out there for kids now!
Play spaces don't have to be filled with plastic...have fun with it and get creative!
My favorites are these mini metal chairs from Industrial West. I'd love to have a few adult sized ones in my kitchen!
I found some classic painted wood chairs at Land of Nod...they also have some bright fun colors on their website.
PB Kids has a mix of the above 2 styles...wooden seat with metal frame.
Of course Ikea has the deal of the century. Imagine 2 of these mini wicker chairs pulled up to the table...the kids may never leave! You could accessorize with cute little throw pillows with the kids initials!
The table could seat up too 4 kids...and Avery has given it her quality test and she approves!!
