We love oilcloth
The projects have been humming away over here at Betsy's. Several on the go and one complete and ready to share. Remember these stools courtesy of a rainy day at Ikea?
Well they were chosen to complete the makeover to the kids craft table. I bought this second hand coffee table on ebay for $20. Perfect height and size for creative projects. Not so perfect as a visual feature at the end of my lounge room.
I had been itching to tackle a simple oilcloth project. Found some gorgeous Heather Bailey laminated fabric and realized this might be something I could actually finish in one session. One staple gun purchased and let's go.
This was super easy and took me about 30 minutes to do. And look at the difference. The legs were already green and amazingly matched pretty well. And so did my old canisters that contain all the crafting essentials.
The kids love it. Look what Roboboy did before school yesterday. I swear the inspired creative table decor is behind his recent prolific art production.
Mother and baby fire breathing dragon of course. And we mustn't leave miss Liongirl out of it all, this one came home from Nonna's. Apparently she chose all the colours and the stencil design.
Anyway, I just love looking at this gorgeous corner of my lounge room, my first step at reclaiming this space as one where I love everything in it and there are no nasty plastic toys to be seen. Ooops, was that a piece of lego that just got sucked up into the vacuum?
