I had it decorated and set up...


Jenna's table

Jenna's table

I'm making a table for little Jenna. She's almost 4 and needs a table of her own to do the things little 4-year old girls do! I started off by painting the boards for the table top in turquoise, pink, brown and white. Before this is all said and done, I'll sand these boards again to make sure the rough edges and splinters are gone. I'm thankful for spring break (a perk of being a teacher)! Today I got the legs cut and the frame built. This little table is going to be so cute! I'm excited! So after a...
