What’s up guys?! I’m still in the process (probably will be forever) of revamping the kids’ playroom upstairs.  My latest addition to is a play table and chairs.  I found the plans on Ana’s site and spent an afternoon getting them done.

I used furring strips from Lowe’s for the entire project except the table top itself.

This was my shopping list for all 5 pieces…

1 – 2×2 furring strip

9 – 1×3 furring strips

4 – 1×2 furring strips

1 – 1×8 whitewood board

My total cost for wood was UNDER $30! Woohoo!!!

One thing I LOVE about this table is the size.  My oldest is 8 and it is large enough for her to sit at as well as toddlers.  The chairs are stackable as well which makes a great feature if you are short on space!

Want to see them all finished??

I used Rust-Oleum Colonial Red spray paint on the chairs and bottom of the table.  I used Minwax dark walnut stain on the top of the table.  I love the combo!

I still have lots to do up here but I do feel like I have made some serious progress… And the kids love it too!  It only took me 45 minutes or so to clean it up just now to take pics for you guys 😉

Here are some of the other projects I have done lately for the playroom…

  1. After visiting Ana White’s website, a couple of different kid’s table popped up. What exact tutorial did you use for this table and chairs? I don’t have fancy tools, but I read above that all you need is a cheap hand saw and a drill. Is that right? So cute! Love it-great job!

  2. This is adorable! I love all that you’ve built. That whole room is fabulous! I’m in the middle of building the play kitchen right now and I want to build this table and chairs as well but I don’t have a kreg jig and don’t want to buy one either. Did you use one? Can I build it without it?

  5. So, I was really hoping for a tutorial or a step by step on how you did this! Do you have the dimensions of the table and chairs??? That would be most helpful!!! I LOVE this set!

  8. Girl..this is awesome!!!! What a wonderful mama you are to bring such fine gifts to your darlings!!!. Man if only I knew about this back in the 80’s when I was raising my boys…I would have had a blast!

  9. I love the table and chairs. I have been looking for chairs for my daughter’s room with no luck. If only I had some power tools I could make my own too. Great job!

    1. Thanks Andrea! I promise all you need is a small $12 hand saw and a drill and you can get it done! Promise!!

  10. Such a cute room. Love the table and chairs, but adore the cute kitchen station. I’m a new fan of your blog and have enjoyed looking through it. My sister in law just messaged me on fb asking for ideas for the re-model of her daughters room. I’ll be sending her this link. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
