_I actually had plans to do the pantry yesterday with the supplies I used for this mini makeover and I wanted to start making over our new/used dining table but somehow I ended up doing this makeover for my sons little play corner. The Ideas came to me as I went.
We live in a small town home, it has 3 bedrooms, a nice dining area but it is tiny with very limited space. My son has a spot in our living room dedicated to just him and his toys. I love to label things and for everything to be organized and I had it organized before but I wanted something more for his walls and something creative for his play table.
Here is a before shot of the table:
Here is before the mini makeover. The table used to be in the corner where the white basket was. I kept storage of his toys somewhat similar to what I had before.
And here are the after shots. I plan on making different posts about how I made over the side table and the "create" framed picture.
I hung a simple basket that I got from IKEA for $2.50 each, on the wall. I did tie twine, so the bucket of crayons and finger paint wouldn't fall out. I have paper and coloring books up there. The side table was painted with chalkboard paint on the top and I made my own chalk paint for the bottom half. I wanted a shabby look to it.
Up close shot of the table. I seasoned it before hand and washed it off and while it was still wet, I drew on it so it was easy. As it dries it becomes whiter.
This is the second basket from Ikea, to hold his MISC toys. I cut a piece of cardboard and stabbed a hole in it then spray painted with chalkboard paint and used twine to tie it on the basket! :) So simple and easy.
I made my own chalk paint with a paint sample and plaster of paris.
The baskets were 2.50 each and I already had the chalkboard paint.
All the artwork was made with things already on hand, even the frames.
I have the DIY create artwork and the black framed toddler printable that I made.
I will update the blog over the next week with these tutorials in separate posts. :)
Such a simple makeover but I love it. We have limited space but I try to make the very best of it. :)
