Train Table to Art Table

My nephew had this train table for years and was getting rid of it and my little sister had the awesome idea of turning it into an art/craft table! Faren's a little young for any of that right now but I was pretty excited about it and got it somewhat done ((have only one side painted for far! lol)) Just went to Lowe's and picked up some chalkboard paint!

A somewhat before picture

We drilled holes in each corner to hold cups for supplies

Took 3 coats of paint

He loves playing with the chalk, and well tries to eat it

Don't think we have many crayons left that haven't been broken, but that's okay

Cups I found

All supplies came from Dollar Tree minus the paint and chalk

Ready to draw together!

Reducing Appearance of Scratches in Wood

I decided to put Mr. Faren in his crib for a bit ((we are co-sleepers)) so he could get a little use to it and I had this bright idea to put the dogs in there with him lol so he'd feel more comfortable. Well they didn't like it and ended up scratching the wood. ((Don't tell my husband)) So I went searching for a little home remedy to reduce the appearance and came up with vinegar and olive oil. You use equal parts. I didn't need much so I used 1 tablespoon of each.  

Scratched or not, isn't this adorable


Peek a boo baby :)
anyway, After....not as bad though right?

The turd that scratched bubs bed

Anywho, I'm pretty excited to have found something that worked! And who knew right?! So easy, I just used a paper towel :)

One Year Pictures

Totally slipped my mind to share a few of Faren's one year pictures. He was in such a horrible mood that day, and he usually loves the camera, but Doc McStuffins turned the frown upside down and we got a good ones! Enjoy!

Ok I couldn't just pick a few, he's so darn cute!
