new coffee table/ work table


This is our new coffee table with stools underneath for the little ones to do their school work on.
I originally got this table at a garage sale. 
I didn't actually want the table but the two chairs that were with it. 
We had it on our veranda for a while and then it was in our outdoor entertaining area. 
We had thought of cutting it down for a coffee table but hadn't got around to it. 


We needed somewhere to sit for the little ones to do colouring and sheet work - they feel they haven't actually done school until they have actually done some sort of sheet. 

Even if we have spent all morning reading books, nature walks, art, singing, games and all great hands on stuff, they still ask "When are we going to do our school work?"- don't they come up with the funniest things!

Anyway back to the story...
Our coffee table was too low to put stools under so we came up with this plan. 
VCH cut down this table to the right height, so it is actually little higher than a normal coffee table and made four little stools to fit under it. 
He then stained it all to match the other wood furniture in the lounge room. 
The little ones love it (as you can see in the above photo) and it is getting used quite a lot for drawing, puzzles and games.
