Spotty table re-vamp

I had promised my daughter for a while that I would put a drawing table in the play room, she loves to draw and easily gets bored watching TV (unlike my son who has square eyes). So at the weekend when we popped to the local garden centre for a browse and I stumbled upon some spotty oilcloth, I had an idea. The Ikea toddler table could have a face lift and become the much needed place to sit and draw.

I cut the oilcloth a couple of inches bigger than the top and stapled it underneath with a staple gun. If you have a bigger table, that you want to look especially nice, Chez Larsson shows you how here. 

It looks great, is easily wipeable, and most of all is now in daily use.
