Kid's Storage Dining Table

Submitted by christy on Thu, 08/25/2011 - 17:01

My sister-in-law wanted a kid-sized dining table for all her nieces and nephews, so I made one for her by combining a couple of Ana's plans. The little seats are just a scaled down version of the Easiest Upholstered Bench plans. My kiddos love it so much, it looks like I'll be making another for us.

Estimated Cost
$100 - $150
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
Finish Used
The base is just gloss white paint. The top is stained using minwax special walnut. I finished the top with 3 coats of wipe-on poly, lightly sanding between each coat.

I'm looking for ideas for a round kid-table to go with a window seat I plan on making. This looks great! What're the dimensions of the table-top? It looks like it'd fit a lot of kiddos, well!

When I looked at the 36", they just seemed too small. It's nice to have something to compare it to! :-)

Hi, can you tell me the age of the kids in the picture? I'm hoping this size would fit my sons with plenty of room to grow. Age/size comparison would help a lot if you don't mind sharing! Your table looks amazing!

They are 5 years and 2 years. The older one is pretty tall for her age...about 46 inches at the time the photo was taken.

Love it, beautiful job. Built this just from the kid's storage table plans. She references a 32" top but I don't believe they sell that size. Just wanted to make sure the 36" isn't top heavy?
