  This weekend we finished up a little corner of the basement playroom/family room as an arts and crafts spot for the kids.  This table had actually been a long computer table/desk.   My husband cut it down and built some benches to go with it.  The legs of the table had once been black, but he painted them yellow.  He painted a piece of paneling with chalkboard paint, then framed it out with molding. The ledge has a groove for the chalk.  The easel is from Ikea (we've had it a few years, but I recently saw it on sale for $15!), and the blue buckets I found in the dollar spot at Target, but I think they were actually $2.50 each.  We may eventually hang some hooks on the wall for the buckets, but this has been working out for now. They are perfect for crayons, markers, etc.  Oh, and that cute blue chair was purchased while we lived overseas. I think I spent about $12 on it a store in South Korea called Home Plus....similar to Target.  
  I don't know why we waited so long to put a kids' table downstairs. It's so nice to keep the kitchen table free of their arts and crafts messes!
