I’ve been eyeing the “kids art area” lately. It takes up a good chunk of real estate in this house filled with six people. And now that we have teenagers with homework and laptops, I started picturing a large, comfy chair to lounge in, maybe a cool IKEA desk with space for a printer and a charging station, a cozy rug, and a table with a lamp. A tech center geared toward teens.
Except there’s a nine-year-old still using the art table.
The tech center dream isn’t the only reason why I’ve been thinking of a change. The truth is that the table is an eyesore. It was lovely when my in-laws bought it for the kids 14-some years ago. I like to think I cleaned it regularly. Or at least occasionally. But somehow it ended up looking like this:
Yikes. But it’s a really nice table and could be resurfaced some day by someone who’s into that sort of thing, Dad. In the meantime, I needed a quick and easy fix. Something attractive but functional. Hardy but inexpensive.
Enter plexiglass and fabric.
Ah…much better. Take your time, Lily. The “tech center” can wait!
Do you have a decorating or renovating project sitting on the back burner for “someday”?
