Creating a Child Friendly Environment: Child-Sized Table and Chairs...

Do you remember our kitchen table? It no longer looks like this:


It looks like this:

After months of drooling over and hoping to get a child-sized table and chairs for our children, we were able to finally get one for free!! Our church got cabinets and counters installed in the coffee hour room and was getting rid of a kitchen table that was larger than ours and matched our chairs, so Fr John hauled it home with the help for some parishioners.

Once that was finished, he cut the legs down on our old table and I painted it. Voila! Our little ones have a table for their crafts! I still have to get a few chairs, but I have my eye on some wooden ones at Michael's craft store (I'm just waiting on some 50% off coupons!). In the meantime, our daughter's rocker (also a Michael's find!) is filling in nicely!

I really like the size of this table because it will accommodate more than one or two children. It will be great for crafting, parties with a lot of children, etc. A big thank you to Hannah for planting the seed of this idea in my head many moons ago!!

Very nice! Looks great!

Is the baby being baptized one of yours?

A quick question. Where do you get images for your blog? I always wonder whether images can be used publicly or not??

Thanks!

Hi Matushka!

I usually just go a google image search and used pictures that i find there. I try not to use anything that looks like a personal photo (esp. w/o permission), but I haven't had any problems yet. I really should get better about referencing where I got the pictures that I use though.
