Svala Landscaping Project

Materials: Svala kids table

Description: Some time ago I bought several sets of Svala kids tables with chairs (on sale), which I used on birthday parties. Two of the tables ended up in the kids play corner.

This month I finally took up my paint brushes and painted a landscape on the tables, in a way that the tables could be used in different positions.

The hardest work was making the green grass, because I had no green paint, so I had to mix yellow and blue. After that the rest was easy… and fun.

And yes, the kids liked it too!

And sometimes, when they are asleep, I rearrange the things on the table, so it’s still fun for me too!
