Last month, Henry & his brother built this wonderful table & chair set for Riley! I was soooo excited! I had come across this tutorial awhile ago and couldn't wait for us to have a chance to finally make Riley his very own special place to work, eat, & play.
After Henry & his brother, Dan, did the woodwork, Dan's girlfriend, Suzie, & I painted everything. I had already decided to paint everything bright, rainbow colors, but was stumped on the table top. Suzie & I came up with the drizzled paint effect while shaking off some excess in the grass. We had so much fun! Then, as a final touch, Riley had to have a part in the making of his furniture with his hand prints.
Of course, the boys tweaked the directions a bit to suit their own needs, but everything worked out just fine in the end! Now Riley can enjoy eating his lunch while looking out the window, doing crafts, & creating masterpieces with his playdough!
