We must not spend enough time at the hardware store because it had never occurred to us that you could make your own laminate table. And why would you want to? Laminate is great for kids because it's durable and easy to clean and doing it yourself means you can put laminate on any size table that works for your space.
Look at this beautiful faux bois laminate table made by Jackie of Avocado & Papaya (guest blogging at the wonderful kelly + olive) and her husband as an art table for their sons. It works nicely for an art table since it wipes down easily, but really it's attractive enough for any room in the house.
Jackie walks you through the process and lets you in on her source for this stylish faux bois laminate here.
