This past Spring Hudson and I took a mommy and me class that included an arts & crafts portion and he loved it. I decided to give him his own little craft table at home and, because I can’t leave good enough alone I needed to zhush up the Ikea Latt children’s table.
The Latt table is a steal ringing up at $19.99.
I knew that a little paint would go a long way so when I was contacted by Lullaby paintsto work on a DIY project I knew exactly what I was going to work on. Lullaby paintsare chalkboard paints that can actually be shipped in the mail. They come in a cute package with a pouch full of paint, a roller, paint tray, painters tape and chalk.
I was excited to test the paint out because I loved the convenience of getting everything in one package and loved that the paint was super safe for Hudson because it is zero VOC with no odor.
We quickly got to work painting our set.
We decided to paint the frames of the table and chairs a bold orange and then painted the chair seats and table top a poppy shade of citron. Along with the chalk finish I decided to add a little something extra to our table set and got to work with a paint pen to draw streets from our neighborhood on the tabletop.
I figured Hudson could use the painted streets to draw his little cars on the road and then eventually draw in houses with chalk and eventually learn the street names near our house with our roads.
Once that was done we had to condition the pieces with a layer of chalk that need then needed to be wiped off before the fun could begin.
Here is our finished product!
Hudson gives it his approval!
I special thanks to Lullaby paints for contacting me to work on this project and sending me their tangerine, citron and antique white paints.
