When my dad’s in town I try to come up with a project for him to do. He’s extremely talented and he likes to be busy. A couple months ago, I asked him to make me a couple tables and he did a great job! I finally painted the one for Davis’ room blue.
Here’s the before shot. It was really easy to make. My dad used a piece of left over shelving (ply wood), screwed on legs that we bought at Home Depot, and he finished it off with some molding.
I calked it and spray painted it blue. Not an hour later, Davis used packing tape to tape his Bionicles in place. Geez. (The note on the floor said, “Do not touch”.) Looking on the bright side, at least he didn’t use duct tape.
I still need to paint the one my dad made for My Loving Family doll house. I’m going to paint it black. I had him put the molding higher on this table so the doll house couldn’t be pushed off. (There isn’t any molding on the back.) It’s now at the perfect height for optimal playing!
Yes, even though I have all boys I do have a doll house and a kitchen. They’re in my guest room that one day will be pink toile with back accents and furniture. It’s the only chance I’ll have to decorate a pink room. Turns out the boys play in there all the time. I’m constantly having to “clean house” in there.
