The temperatures reached into the 80s in DC yesterday, reminding me that it's time to get our outdoor spaces in order and start living outside. Here are 5 great low-to-no maintenance pieces of outdoor furniture fashioned just for the little ones.
We loved the terrific lounger Carla and her husband made for their little boy, but truthfully we were having a hard time envisioning the PVC pipe frame inside and our sewing construction skills aren't the best either. We're in luck - by popular demand, Carla wrote up a detailed tutorial so you can make this at home yourself. It all made sense when we saw her photos!
We're willing to overlook the potential difficulty of cleaning these wool felt balls because this pouf is so darn colorful and fun. Described as "squishy, yet firm" it brings a lot of texture to the party, too.
The IKEA Benjamin stool is one of those super versatile pieces that comes in handy when you have kids. We use ours as stools, as the base for make-shift sensory tables, and as little tables for drawing or for snacks. They're looking a little beat up these days and could use a coat of paint or two.
