Is everyone still going bananas at the Serena and Lily Big Deal Sale? I'm trying to hold off because we're supposed to be saving for a new King size mattress and bed. I wish their mattress was part of the big deal sale. That would make one large purchase a little easier. But I've got several smaller items in my cart just waiting for me to pull the trigger. I mean it's free shipping. I'm so close.
I also have a little DIY up my sleeve today. I'm in love with the Pottery Barn small farmhouse table.
We seriously need it for our kitchen. Much to my dismay, Tagg has completely boycotted his high chair and likes to sit at the table with Wells. It's more convenient to have them sit somewhere in the kitchen than to head to the dining room for every snack.
But as I mentioned before, I have to keep my house budget priorities in line and this doesn't fit with that. So, I'm going to try to create a small dining table for Wells and Tagg in our kitchen. Full disclosure, it's more Sandra Lee style than a full on Ana White DIY.
We have a small square table with a decorative lip under the ledge that is just low enough it prevents the kids from using this table as a play table. I've been waiting patiently to ask Matt to cut that decorative piece off so that a chair will tuck underneath. But I go back and forth because the decorative curve adds so much character. I've got a solution.
So basically, I'm going to take a small coffee table that I already own and add small ball feet to the bottom to raise it high enough for the kids to fit their legs underneath. Then I'm going to spray paint it white. I plan on using wood glue to adhere the feet to the bottom with the hopes that Matt will come back behind me and secure them more thoroughly with a nail or screw or something I know nothing about.
I know my limits. Glue and spray paint it is. Follow along on instagram today to see more.
