School Table Re-Do Project

We moved to our home about 3 months ago. One of the things I love about it is that there is a small room off of the front room that is perfect for a learning space. It's the kind of space that you can close the door on and make a mess (actually it's the kids who do that in this room) and no one has to see it! It's a sanity savor room!

One of the things I knew we needed was a kid-sized work table. I fell in love with this one from Pottery Barn:
Carolina Craft Table

It was the perfect height for the kids to STAND or SIT at. I loved that. But I wanted it for less $ and I wanted more storage in it. So I was still deciding....

Then I saw this kid's vanity for $10 at a yard sale. They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And I was seeing a BEAUTY! It happened to be the EXACT same height as the Pottery Barn one and I knew it was meant for me!
I pulled the center piece of wood out and had my storage for each of the kids in the two sets of drawers. With a good coat of paint and liners in the drawers they were done.

Then I stopped at the ReStore and picked up this island counter top (which is easier to clean and I don't have to worry about what they can do to it-for $30) and put it on top. Done!
It's the exact same size as the table I loved with all the features we needed. I love this kind of {Little Project}! With school starting this little beauty is going to make life so much easier!

Coming up, I'll show how all we keep the learning room equipped and ready for learning ;)

What kind of kid-friendly space do you make for your kids?

What a great find! The island counter top would be easier to keep clean. I wish I'd done that with our pine craft table which now has some pen marks etched into it!
