With the sun finally coming out in Canada, we have been spending our days outdoors!
Our backyard is super TINY but there is a corner of the flowerbed that is designated as Carter's Corner. It's not elaborate, in fact, until last weekend it was bare. Empty. Full of dirt = perfection.
He'd sit back there for hours with a few trucks or "diggers" plowing away.
Or with this massive one! :)
Well we decided to take the dirt a step further this summer.
I bought this lovely IKEA table set at a garage sale last year for $35.
I knew when I bought it that it would be painted ASAP. I just didn't know that ASAP would be like a year and a half later.
It had run its course in the house and was sitting in the garage waiting for me to use it.
Low and behold...
The Mud Pie Table
I painted the top black with chalkboard paint. (Because we had it.)
Then I sprayed the legs with copper spray paint. (Because I like it.)
Found two mixing bowls at the grocery store.
Pie Break! Then....
Had Daddy cut out two holes.
Now the bowls are fit level with the table! A perfect work space.
The two bowls can be used for any materials really!
Right now, we're using water and dirt.
I have visions of using wood scraps, wood glue and paint.
Now if the rain could go away today we'd have a happy boy. Because we all know that a dirty boy is a happy boy!
