Creative Collections: Kitchen Table DIY

Oh my, life at our house is crazy. Nesting, decorating, party planning (Emily turns 2 in 2 1/2 weeks!!!), standardized testing at school. And a sick baby. Emily is usually such a healthy child, so whenever she gets sick, I just ache for her. Fever, grumpy, hoping it’s not hand/foot/mouth. Sweet child.

One of the big projects Logan’s been working on is bench seating and a kitchen table for our eat-in kitchen. He’s mostly done his own design, but the tables were inspired by DIY projects on Pinterest. I can’t tell you how many hours I spent looking at these tables! When Logan gets it sanded down and I paint it (thinking of trying homemade chalk paint), I’ll post pictures!

Okay, obviously I love Ana White‘s website! She has fantastic ideas and her tutorials are really easy to follow (at least Logan thinks so)! If you have something to build, I’d highly recommend checking out her site. And no, I’m not being paid to say that 🙂

***********************

Slightly off topic, but since I’m going to try chalk paint for the first time, does anyone have feedback about the following recipe:  1/3 cup plaster of paris, 1 cup paint, 1/3 cup water. Comments I’ve ready said not paint with primer. Besides that… What have you tried? What suggestions do you have?

  1. I am curious about chalk paint too. Everyone says it’s amazing to use, but to use professional instead of home made. I would totally try home made first!! I’ll be watching to see how it goes for you.
