Our Kitchen Table
For us, it is so much more than a place to eat. It is the only table, so it is the everything table!
So, when it was finally time to replace our old-but-who-cares-what-happens-to-it table with a nicer piece of furniture, we decided to protect it as much as possible.
I simply went to our local fabric store, and bought a sheet of heavy-duty vinyl big enough to cover the table. It protects from spills, paints, pens, markers, and even Matthew’s fork and Jesse’s attempts to cut his food himself! It cleans up with a dishcloth, or Windex and a paper towel if you really want it to look nice. For special occasions, I can put decorations, place mats, or a table runner under the vinyl, and they stay looking nice, too!
When you have company, it rolls up nicely and tucks away in a closet. Or, if you’re like us and most of your company has a passel of kids as well, it just stays on the table year-round.
It works for me!
