Well, this didn't have anything to do with playgroup, but it is one of quite a few finished projects that I have finally checked off my list. Isn't it nice to be able to spend your tiny bit of free time making things instead of cleaning?
I saw this tutorial over at The Mother Huddle and knew that I had to make one for Phoebe. She just loves Phoebe-sized furniture, but kid furniture is so darn expensive. Why the heck is that anyway?
I won't take you step by step through the process (the tutorial does an excellent job of that), but in case you were wondering; I got the bench legs at Home Depot, along with a board that I cut down to 9"x3' for the top. The fabric is part of a tablecloth from Target that I stalked until it finally went on clearance. Sure the original price was a steal at only $15.99 for an entire tablecloth worth of fabric, but everyone knows that if you bide your time and go to Target every other day for a couple of months, you'll eventually get it for only $3.24.
My daughter decided that she was not in the mood to model it for me today, but she found a willing stand-in.
