My Boys love to draw and color, but unfortunately they did not have an accessible place in the house to do it. The tables and countertops were way too high for them to climb up easily and there were no other tabletop available to them, so they would just be on the floor. The solution……build My Boys a not so ordinary Art Table.
Here is the tutorial on how we built this Art Table.
We began with a trip to IKEA and gathered the materials needed.
We picked this table and chair set because it would match the rest of the furniture in the room where we were going to put it.
These were some extra materials we used to add some more accessories to the table.
First we had to put the table and chairs together, which was a fairly easy job, not too many pieces. I even got the Hubby to help!!
While he worked on that I spray painted the canisters that would be used to store the crayons, markers, etc. I wanted the canisters to match the table/decor.
After we installed the rod I decided to spray paint it with the Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint, just so everything would match.
Once the canisters were dry we screwed them to the other side of the table.
Then to put some finishing touches on the table I used rub-on letters to put the Boys’ names on the back of their chairs and stickers for their names on their magazine holders, which will hold their coloring books.
Since we put this table together there has not been a day that the Boys did not spend time on it……without a doubt it was worth the time and effort!
