Projects!!!

I am super excited to show you the project I am working on! My parents had this Winnie the Pooh table for when my niece and nephew were small. They no longer need such a small table to they passed it on to me. This table was already second hand, and I believe my parents had it for at least 4 or 5 years.

It's a perfect kid's table, being that you can wipe it off-but sadly, I am not a fan of having Pooh in my kitchen. Sorry. So what do we do? We adapt. We change. We conquer!

BEFORE:



AFTER!!!!!



Sorry for the bad pictures folks, we are in the middle of a hurricane! 

This transformation was pretty simple. Spray paint, and a vinyl table cloth from Target! I wanted to use the vinyl so I could still wipe it off. I love it! These are the exact colors in my kitchen, so it's going to blend perfectly! I ran out of spray paint, and since we are in a hurricane-the rest will wait. Once I finish it, I will post the project in full! 

Tell me what you think guys!


XOXO,
D. Lynn

  1. So adorable! I have a very siamilar table and would love to recover it. I have a question though...one of my back rests on one of the chairs already fell off and I tried to super glue it back on but it did not work. It was not screwed in (as far as I could tell) so my question is how did you get your back rests back on after you covered them???

  2. Anonymous-

    Mine were actually screwed in already. I don't see why you couldn't screw them in yourself if you had the right bit for your screwdriver. Also, why kind of glue did you use? Try one of the epoxies (sp?) from Lowe's or Home Depot. Make sure the packaging says that it will adhere to metal. (or whatever your table is made of) Let me know how it turns out!

  3. Thank you for the suggestion! My table is metal and I tried to glue the back rest on with ALOT of super glue and it stuck for about 2 minutes before one of my kidos ran over and pulled the piece back off :) I will have to try the glue you mentioned, hopefully it will work! If not I will see about the whole screw driving it in myself :) THANKS!!!
