We have the adjustable (SANSAD) Ikea tables in the studio! Woohoo! The art group folks surprised me with them yesterday. What a gift! I'm still in shock.
I'm so glad to finally have art tables to accomodate both Maia (and her friends) and Daphne (and her friends). The table with the blue feet is at the lowest setting and is still a tad tall for Daphne, but I think it'll work okay and of course she'll grow quickly. The table with the red feet is at the middle setting now, but we may move it up to the highest setting. Not sure yet. The current height may work for both Maia and for the taller toddler art group kids. We'll see... (By the way, each table came with two red feet and two blue feet, but I decided to try one color on each to differentiate the tables more clearly.)
I love the easy-wipe laminate tops on these tables!
The old studio table is going to be our new outdoor art table. Whenever the weather is nice, the toddler art group can paint or whatever on it outdoors. And Maia, too, of course.
For those who asked about my painted black and white "tiles," they are very easy to make but somewhat time consuming. I marked off the squares on the cement (1 foot by 1 foot, I think) using a sharpie and a yardstick. Then I painted in first the white squares then the black using porch and floor paint.
I finished repainting the white "tiles" last night -- doesn't it look better with a fresh coat of paint?! Now I just have to let the paint cure, add a sealer, rehang the drying wall wires, paint the shelves white, and rehang them... The studio remodel is moving slowly, but surely. And it is making me happy!
