Children's Table Makeover

My daughter loves playing kitchen, having tea parties and doing all sorts of art projects. I think every kid needs to have their own table that's just their size. I wanted something that would be cute, stylish, durable and not just a folding table. Cute children's tables can be pretty pricey and you know that's not my style. I found this one at Ikea for $20 and put my own spin on it. Enjoy! Also please click to follow me and leave a comment so I know you were here! I really appreciate all the support!

Here's what I used:
table and chairs
modge podge
paper
alphabet/number stickers
paint (if you want to change the color)


  1. Paint table
  2. Measure each place you want to cover with paper. I used coordinating paper, but used a different piece on every section. I covered all sides of the chairs including the seat. For the table I used the stickers to cover all sides.
  3. Apply modge podge one section at a time and adhere paper. I also put a layer of modge podge over the paper and stickers to give it extra protection and to make it easy to wipe off.

What a great idea. I have been looking for a cute toddler table but they are all pretty boring. It is more fun to do it yourself anyway. I would love it if you would stop by and link this post up to my crafty link party that I just started at Lines Across My Face.

so creative! I love the patterns you used! This is definitely on my "to do" list!!

Nancy said...

Hiya! Found this on NJAH, and I recognized the Ikea set we also have for our toddler. I love this idea! I will use some of the scrapbook paper I already have to get started. Quick question: do you find the modge podge does a good enough job of handling a toddler's mess and damage? Thanks!

Stephanie said...

That looks like so much fun for little girls! I love the colors and patterns you used. I have a party going on over at my blog if you want to join! I'd love to have you! Check it out under the "Stache Party" page on my blog: mylilpumpkinpatch.blogspot.com

FYI - just finished painting the chairs.... I have some great scrapbook paper for a more gender neutral version of your fun table and chairs (one son, and one surprise on the way!) I will send you a link to my finished project when it's all done. Paint better dry FAST, my due date is less than two weeks away!
