Okay, so yesterday you saw the wall portion of Babygirl’s Art Center. Next she needed a work surface, and preferably a comfy, small (tiny corner of the room, remember?) one. Since I always try to shop my house first (yes I do, Mr. Sugarplum!!!), I was delighted to find a breakfast tray in the back of our pantry.
Now, I won’t turn this into some sort of neglected wife rant…but I will say, we received that tray as a wedding gift in 1998 (I’ll do the math for you, that’s almost 13 years ago), and I have yet to sit on the receiving end of the tray! Just sayin’.
So needless to say, the tray wasn’t being properly utilized. (And why yes, of course I serve Mr. Sugarplum breakfast in bed every Saturday morning! Don’t you for your spouse?!?)*
I simply painted it with leftover paint from her bed, and glued a strip of ribbon around the edge for more graphic punch. Now she can sit near her colors and create.
The great thing about the tray, is it wipes clean almost like a dry-erase board. I guess that’s in case you spill your breakfast on it!
We seem to have misplaced some hardware for the bottom portion of the chalkboard, so I’ll be thinking of a Plan B for that. For now, she’s happy to have her own personal spot!
This corner is definitely coming together, but I’m trying to make it more comfy with some no-sew pillows. Oh yeah, it’s as big of a trainwreck as it sounds!
