Thrifted Kids Play Table Set


Score! I spotted this set right after it was dropped off at my local Salvation Army! So, without second thought, I grabbed it. I know there are only 3 chairs, missing that piglet one, but com'on, how can I pass on such a cute set, especially when it looks almost like new. I have been looking for some kid's play table set for the playroom (aka. the living room) and the nursery. Since all our rooms are small, I have to try even harder to find something fits the scale. The day before I bought this gorgeous set, I picked up another set on the curb! Yeah, I do pick up other people's trash once a while. They were even smaller than this pooh set, with princess design. But the finish was really badly damaged, and some pieces are loosen. So, they are in process of being fixed and refinished. I will show you the before and after of that set once I am done with it. That set will go into the nursery, since it's smaller and has just 2 chairs. Meanwhile, little caterpillar and her stuffed animal friends are enjoying this 'brand new' set. And I got it right in time for her bday party. The older kids (5yr old) can eat at this table! PERFECT! And it's just the right size for that tiny corner of the living room. I used to put my Norfolk Pine tree there over winter, but since we need space for little caterpillar's toys, it has to go. I am so glad someone came and picked it up, along with several other house plants I left on the curb. Here is how this 'new' table set looks with alphebet art I made her, and some of the bday decor. I will show you the rest of the decor after the big party.

Is there any chance that you'll be willing to sell one of the chairs?

Sorry, I am not going to sell any chairs. In fact, I am still on the hunt for the 4th one, the piglet chair. If I cannot find it, 3 chairs is ok for such a tight corner.
Good luck to your chair hunting.
