Next project: kiddie table & chair makeover

I've still got a case I-can-do-it-too syndrome thanks to reading a ton of DIY refinishing and craft blogs, so yesterday I picked up this cute kiddie table and chair set. It's been rain damaged and is coming apart, but I *think* I can fix it up. And if not, it came from Freecycle, so didn't cost me anything.
Table top definitely needs some work

The set

Chairs have seen better days, too.

So, we'll see how this goes. I'm guessing a good sanding is step number one for me. Then maybe priming and spray painting? I recently saw (in my blog travels) a cute child's chair painted black and monogrammed...I was thinking that might be fun, but maybe too girly for my boys.

Finally, a new blog called Crazy Domestic launched today. Looks good, and there's a few giveaways, so check it out!
