Super Indestructable Kids Table

Materials: LATT Children’s Table and Chairs

Description: We have the slightly older version of these, the slatted ones. I LOVED the little table and chairs, but really hated how dirty it got and how hard it was to clean. So my husband talked to a friend, and this was the AMAZING result.

Step 1. Assemble the table and chairs.
Step 2. Sand down any rough/uneven spots (If the table or chairs has been used then clean thoroughly!!)

Step 3. Talk to auto body places to get the best quote on bed-liner/rhino-liner.
Step 4. Have them spray the liner color of your choice and let it cure.
(Option: You can also buy the kits to do this yourself for between $15 -35, we just happened to have a friend with a shop that does this.)
Step 5. Enjoy your completely water, food, marker, crayon, glue, and generalized gunk proof table and chairs!

My 6 year old totally loves these and they are pretty much indestructible. ENJOY! :)

    Is RHINO LININGS® protective coating environmentally friendly?

    Yes. Rhino Linings truck bed liner products have no VOCs (no possible health hazards) or CFCs (which can damage the ozone layer).

    I rolled some on to the bumper of my Jeep and it is very course stuff. A lot like 60 grit sandpaper. Made to protect against nicks and scrapes from lumber and tools (not to mention the elements!) so you know it is tough stuff.

    Isn’t that stuff rough? I thought it was textured to stop things from moving around easily in the truck bed. Maybe I’m wrong.

    I would consider the chemicals’ impact on the child’s health. The ones you use for automobile paintwork seem to me kinda inappropriate to use with kids. God knows only what they emit even when dry.

    Kinda cool, but would it have been simpler to just buy a plastic set?
