ideas....

I am working on my furniture painting almost every day now. I have the coffee table finished (and not how I started it at all!!), the console table, an end table and a drawered table all done. YAHOO!!! I am about to start on my kids' table and chairs set. I'm not sure what to do with it. Joe says just paint it in primary colors, but I want to make it something unique. I am thinking that it needs to have a theme, maybe from a book?!? What ideas do you have? Gals with kids, what would be cute for a little coloring/playdough work table for your kids? Right now I'm thinking Dr.Seuss. Maybe "Cat in the Hat?" I also like "Green Eggs and Ham." Give me some advice! I want to draw it off this weekend so I can start painting on Monday!!

Very Hungry Caterpillar. It has lots of great pictures. I hope it turns out well. I want to see pictures. I may need to get you to repaint our little table!! :)

What FUN!

we love "are you my mother" and i think the tree with the nest in the book is very artsy. It would be cool to do the table with the tree or maybe the tree with the snort putting the bird back in the nest. The chairs would be fun as different animals in the book.

Just a thought. We also love cat in the hat, though!

Love both those ideas...also thinking Noah's Ark maybe?

What about using different nursery rhymes? I like the Dr. Seuss idea, maybe "One fish, Two fish, Red fish, Blue fish." Anyway, I need to solicit your creativeness because I've found several books in a series called "Ella the Elegant Elephant" and they are just precious, but I don't know what to do with them to make them into something cute and creative for Ella. Got any ideas?

I think Hermie would be neat. It is a book by Max Lucado for children.
