 I finally finished the table! I decided to DIY this one myself!
When I created the Concept Board - Kid's Space Inspired by a Sock Monkey- I knew I wanted incorporate a "play table". When designing for a child I try to use pieces not just for children, but pieces that can grow with the family. I look for items with a "fun and playful" style but can re purposed throughout time.
Coffee tables make perfect play tables. They are just the right height for a little one to stand and play. Later they can be used as a "conversation" area for a Tween/teen.

When I found this table (above) I loved the curved lines of the legs and the "rustic reclaimed" wood.
I used all new (cheap) boards and distresses and aged them myself. This was a really easy DIY because in this case imperfection = character!






Tutorial here..... So you can do it yourself  too!
