12 Fun DIY Kids Table Makeovers

12 Fun DIY Kid's Table Makeovers

One day while perusing our local Goodwill I came across this kid's table.
Aside from the fact that it's covered in stickers and the motif on top makes it look like something you would recover from the trash cans of  one-time famous designer, Laura Ashley, it had potential.
Plus, it was $2.00. I mean for $2.00 ANY THING can have potential, right?

At the time, Little B was just a teeny tiny blimp on an ultrasound but I brought this little guy home with me because I knew one day it would come in handy. That day is now! There's only a little over a week until the end of the One Room Challenge and the playroom reveal and I'm still scrambling trying to come up with ideas on what to do with this table set.

Here's a round-up of a few of my favorite ideas.

 I can't get enough of the playful pops of colors and scalloped design on this set!
It's perfect for a kid's room.

This makeover of the ever-so popular Ikea LATT line is so sweet and precious for a girl's room.

Gosh, isn't this SOOO pretty? The look of this floral table was created with wrapping paper.
YES, wrapping paper!

I love the idea of adding fabric to the kid's chairs and those dipped legs are fantastic.

Obsessed doesn't even come close to describing how I feel about farmhouse-styled furniture lately!
I blame Fixer Upper for this.

Speaking of "Fixer Upper"....
Jo-Jo is a design goddes. Let's just put that out there....

I vote "YES" for grey! It's my new favorite color.
I also love the addition of the stenciled numbers on the backs of the chairs.

This letter pressed inspired kid's table is very Pottery Barn-ish.
Two thumbs up in my book!

I'm so smitten with the contrast of the dark wood and the pops of blue in this set.

Or you can tone it down a notch and mix wood tones with grays. Yummy!

I've toyed with the idea of adding a large chalkboard to one of the playroom walls BUT I CAN NOT stand the feel of chalk, seriously, it gives me the goosebumps. Am I normal? Don't answer that.
I may be able to sacrifice and paint just the top of the table with chalkboard paint like this lovely project.

Another chalkboard idea AND in my FAVORITE color!
Hmmm...maybe I could get over that chalk phobia.

Adorable collection! Love all the farmhouse looking ones and the gray ones, but I think my favorite is that first one with all the colors. Wow! Looking forward to seeing what you do with your table.

I love love love the scallops! Like, I want to paint them on something right now. Would that be too juvenile for my living room coffee table?? :) If you don't like the feel of chalk, what about chalk markers? I just bought a "Bistro Chalk Marker" at Walmart. Works like a paint pen, washes off with water, and no dust! I haven't tried it on my painted chalkboards yet, but it did really well on the metal chalkboard labels I bought it for.

I'd love to hear from you!
