add two $1.99 ikea chairs from goodwill
(i know they probably cost $2.99 at ikea
but i didn't have to drive to portland
& end up with 14 other things that i couldn't resist
right kate? :)
& an end table turned boy's deskmix in a girl who likes to paint
& a boy who loves a project
with a generous helping of
a mom, who when she gets an idea in her head
& has more than 8 minutes
can't not try to make it happen
bake in the oregon april sun for an hour or so
& the table will have an after-after shot
because painting it greenish (the paint color we have the most of)
was not my brilliant plan...
i may be getting older
& have little to no extra time for projects
but i haven't fallen that far
ps tips for painting with kiddos:
or tips for moms if you want a few minutes of stillness:
give your kiddo a very small brush
& a very large thing to paint...
works like a charm
(for me at least)
even if they don't finish
you've bought yourself a little time...
hopefully to paint, too :)
pps i gave no instruction on paint color
they both just did red with a few accent smears
Q because that's what he was feeling
miss m because anything Q is doing must be the coolest idea ever...
i love that about them...
