One of my weekend projects in this last month turned out to be a success. A while back we sold our bar-top table on craigslist because it wasn't as kid-friendly as we would like, we bought a great (and cheap) table from Ikea and used our orange benches as seats, it's perfect for Xander to climb up and down. We were brainstorming about what to do with the top, because it wasn't finished and it stained really easy, and we thought of the best idea...chalkboard paint! I had already painted a couple rectangles on the kitchen walls for notes and calendars, so it seemed fitting to match, and be totally kid friendly. It turned out great. I decided when Caleb was gone on a work trip that I would just get it done and surprise him when he got back. I took a quick shot of the table before X got a hold of it, now I wish I would have done a before picture, oh well.
Xander, breaking in the table.
He likes to practice his letters and his shapes. He's too smart.
He usually asks Mama to draw something, sometimes a ghost, and sometimes letters.
Highly recommend this table idea to anyone with toddlers. What a great way to keep them busy and creative at the same time, especially when you're cooking dinner and he wants to be close.
