new table

This table and chair were a fabulous yard sale find from last weekend.  They are both very sturdy and in great condition.  I was wanting a table where Maddox could sit, eat, play, color, etc...and this is the perfect size!  No more eating in the booster seat on the floor, now we sit together at the table!  Hopefully I can find at least one more small chair, but for now one is enough.  Now I need to decide if I want to paint the table, or leave it the way it is.  The problem is that it looks very obviously used and has scratches and marks (they really aren't that bad)-but I can't decide which color would be best to paint it since we don't always plan on having it in our Dining Room forever. 
Mdx enjoys having her own space to spread out her things.
We've had a lot of hot weather recently, so we spent a lot of time outside!

In this video Mdx is very sweaty from playing outside.  I had to practically chase her through the yard to get her to come back in.  

We got out the little duck sprinkler that Marshall's Aunt Cheri gave to Mdx.  It kept falling over because our grass was way too long-as you can see.
The wheelbarrow comes in handy when you are as busy as she is!

So much fun, but I didn't really want to get wet!  This is so different from last summer, when she couldn't even walk!

Great Table, Mary! I am going to yard sales this morning - maybe I'll find another chair or two for the table! I love the videos! She's so cute, and talking so much!

Hey, I would not paint it. I think you will love it more if you leave it with a wood finish. Maybe lightly sand it and put a coat of polyurethane on it. It looks like a great find!!!
