As I have mentioned in previous posts, my son is obsessed with crafts...especially coloring!! I used to let him color at his highchair, but then he started wanting to color during meals. I realized it was time for a craft table.
For months I had been putting different tables in "my carts", so that I would be ready for this day. Most were fun and expensive tables. Just like every other child/baby item, I got caught up in needing the best one that I could find. Then you have a moment of clarity when you remember that expensive doesn't equal best.
I figured I would search Amazon and a few others sites, for tables with high customer ratings, but still affordable. However first I needed to run out for a few items. One of my stops happened to be Ikea, I figured why not check out what they have.
table and chair set (it comes with two chairs), for $19.99.
Seriously $19.99, how sturdy could it be?? I checked it out and it seemed to be great. I asked my husband what he thought, and he said "how bad can it be"?? So we bought the set, and figured we would give it a try.
Four weeks later, and it has become one of my favorite buys. My favorite things, always seem to be items that I stumble upon.
I can't say enough good things about this table; it is the perfect height for my son to sit at, it is easy to wipe Crayon off of, it is not too big or small, it is a neutral color (does not over power the room like most kids furniture does)... The chairs are sturdy too, my husband and I can even sit on them.
Anyone in the market for a table and chairs set, I would recommend heading to Ikea. They have so many cute kids' items. (and stuff for mom, like the candles and $1 dark chocolate bars... they are unusually good)
