My Little Tikes Table UpCycle
I'm not sure what it is but ever since becoming a mom I have found my crafty side – LOL! Lately I have been all over UpCycling some pretty fantastic pieces. Why not save some money and make a one of a kind item for your home. So a couple of weeks ago I saw a post on Pinterest of a blogger that made over her Little Tikes table. See her post HERE.
I loved the idea so much that I hit up kijiji in search of some sort of kids table to make over. I found the table below for only $10. I ran over – picked it up and got to work. I am so super happy with the finished product. 🙂
Other than the table that you are UpCycling you only need a few materials.
- A staple gun
- Cheap spray paint in your colour of choice. Don't buy the expensive stuff, I spent only a couple of bucks!
- Your choice of fabric
- Vinyl to cover the seats and top of table. I bought a vinyl shower curtain but you can buy sheets of vinyl also.
This was a really easy craft. It was fairly easy to take apart. No nails or screws in the version the legs just popped off. Once all pieces were apart I cleaned and dried them all really well. The legs took only one coat of paint which was awesome and some touch ups when dry. I cut the fabric around each piece and stapled it directly to the table. As the seats are a bit curved I had to do some tucking but it is under the seats so nobody can see it. 😉 Once the fabric was done I repeated the same steps but with the vinyl.
I then put it all back together just as I found it but looking pretty stylish. Now Shane has a fun little table to sit at, and easy to wipe down any messes made. This was a fun and really easy DIY UpCycle project that looks really cool!
