Kids Table Project

ikea-kids-table-and-chairs

I have big plans to purchase the Svala Table set from Ikea,

I want to paint the top with chalkboard paint so the kids can scribble on it.

But I’d like to make the rest of it look cute too. Should I paint it all white and add decals? Paint it different (neutral colors)?

Bath Storage

Now that I have 2 toddlers, I’ve been eyeing the Boon Frog Pod. But to be honest, frogs don’t exactly fit my house decor, and I have a boy AND a girl, and the frog seemed to be more for boys, they do have a lady bug, but of course that screams girl.

Everytime I go to Target, I browse their aisles for some sort of bath toy storage, and never find what I’m looking for. I want something that looks good, but isn’t too adult, but that is convenient, affordable, and still flows with the rest of the house.

Yesterday I opened up my inbox, and had an e-mail about the newest Skip Hop product.  Tubby! A new bath organizer that’s “Soft, stretchy, and stays put!”

It comes in blue and orange. I’m partial to the blue, the kids bathroom (or guest bathroom) is done in beige/neutral colors, and the blue would compliment it nicely!

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions…

I’ve been going back and forth with the idea of cloth diapering. It just seems inconvenient, but I know a few moms who cloth diaper, and they love it more than anything. So I’ve been talking with them about it, and I think I’m going to go for it.

It will be cheaper in the long run, but the upfront investment, I just do not have at this time. I like the idea of a one-size/all-in-one cloth diaper, because it works just like a disposable diaper, but you just wash it instead of throw it out. And because it’s one-size (adjustable), I wouldn’t have to worry about buying multiple sizes. There are a few accessories I’d have to buy, but overall, the savings would add up over the course of 2 or so years of a baby in cloth diapers vs. disposable.

After doing some research, I really like the idea of the All in one BumGenius Organic diapers. Now I just need to save up to buy an 18 or 24 pack!
