Thanksgiving is just two months away which means it’s that time of year when I search for holiday items that can be used year-round. It didn’t take me long to find this thrifted table and snatch it up. While my own children are much older now, I know someone will enjoy setting this kids’ Thanksgiving table and make it a special place for their kiddos.
Here’s how the the table looked when I brought it home. It wasn’t in too bad shape, but really wanted to give it a richer finish in a much deeper tone.
Sanding it down with my DeWalt rotary sander revealed the beautiful solid wood.
From there it was as simple as wiping on two coats of Minwax English Chestnut stain. I absolutely love this color stain for kids’ tables. You can see how I used it on THIS Kids’s Thanksgiving Day farm table that was refinished this time last year.
The coat of oil-based satin polyurethane is the best protection you can get so it’s going to stand up to not just Thanksgiving dinner, but every type of craft the kids can throw at it later on.
And so the kids’ feel extra-special, I’ve made these two drop-cloth table runners just as they might see on the adult table.
Drop cloths are an inexpensive yet very durable fabric that I use for all kinds of projects – table runners, chair covers, and even curtain panels. I purchase mine at Lowes, but you can find similar ones HERE.
You could even use these table runners as a craft themselves and let this kids draw on their own Thanksgiving Day design on them.
This Kids’ Thanksgiving Day table and table runners are now available for sale as a set in Entri Ways’ online Shop.
