The kids and I love it. We have been so much better at having family dinners at the table now. Our old counter height table was just too big, fancy, and uncomfortable for a family table. I love that I can just touch this one up when we get anything on it (which we already have done!). :)
I got the table off KSL, stripped it and painted it. The chairs were from Ikea. I just sanded those down too and painted them up.
The little basket I built and stained all by myself! So much for overpriced baskets at the store! :) Hobby lobby had one just smaller for $25. Mine cost $5.
My wall decor is not quite done yet, but here's what I have so far. My kids monograms ($12. Letters from Hobby Lobby, fabric from WalMart), a duck for Chloe (she's obsessed with Ducks for some reason. Can't get enough of them!), and clouds for my dreamer/imaginer, James. I just used my cricut to cut vinyl. Then I sprayed over it. I am still coming up with how Sam will be represented. We all know that nothing but trains exists in his world, I just don't want to be so literal. It's been so fun and they love their art.
The hooks for their coats are awesome. I had fun making them and putting them together. Just a 1x8 board cut and stained. Hooks mounted on front and the back is drill with screw holders. I just need to build the little bench seat under them now to pull it altogether.
I love creating and developing skills. It gets my mind and body going.
