Why do they make children’s play tables so expensive? I decided to make my own after seeing this one on the mali-mo blog. Nora found this one for me at Unique for $15. Before:
This is painted with left over paint from the front door. I use this paint a lot. I used it on the outside metal furniture too. It’s a Sherwinn Williams color. I want to say it is called Meander Blue. I’ll have to look at one of my very first blog posts when we painted the front door! Holy cow, I was right. Meander Blue. I copied this color from Miles Redd’s front door. I considered doing some gold highlights on it (like the inspiration pic) but I don’t have any gold so I thought I would just live with it this way for a while and then decide about adding gold paint. Anyway, I only have one child’s chair that fits it so I am on the look out for more at garage/rummage/flea sales this year…
IF…we can ever get healthy and I can make it out of the house to sales that is! I came down with a sore throat yesterday and hoped it was only allergies. Today I am sure it is something more. Especially since Mila had a two day sneezing fit earlier this week. Poor dear, I thought it was just allergies then too and kept dragging her out on our usual days adventures. Miles and Liam both stayed home feeling unwell today. February, March and April have just been this way. But honestly, it’s this way every year for us. Liam especially is frequently sick at this time of the year every year. I’m not sure why. **Note to myself** Next Winter I need to start Liam on vitamin C, D, Probiotics and Fish Oil at the very least to boost his immune system for this time next year. Anyway, I am resting up today so I won’t be sick for the weekend (I hope!). I missed out on a rummage sale last night in Poolesville and one this morning in Walkersville (plus a fun play date for me and Mila). Oh man!
