One Room Challenge: Week 2 Play table and chairs reveal

Well maybe a couple days late but checking in to provide an update on week 2 of the One Room Challenge.  I decided to jump in as Linking Participant in the ORC that kicked off last week over at Calling it Home.  Click here to see week 1.

This past week we made some progress on the play table and chairs!   I love how everything came together.  The table top is perfect for crafts, coloring & drawing, or playing a board game.  The bottom shelf adds extra easy access storage for coloring books and sketch pads.  I decided to paint the DIY school chairs a fun and bright turquoise.  They contrast nicely with the newly painted white trim and play table.


You all know how I love a good DIY designer knock-off.  My inspiration came from this adorable set at Land of Nod.  Be sure to check back this week to see more details on how the play table came together.

I found these adorbs galvanized tins with chalkboard labels in the dollar bin at Target.  They work as great storage for all our crayons, colored pencils, markers and paint pens.


The boys are loving the table, too.  They couldn't even wait for primer and paint before they started using it.  Ben used the bottom shelf to closely store his beloved (and smelly) blankie.


On tap this week - tackling the reorganization of this closet.  Oh boy.  I have my work cut out for me!


Also, don't forget to check out these amazingly talented bloggers that are participating in the ORC at Calling it Home.  Thanks for hosting this amazing event, Linda!  So much inspiration!
