This summer I picked up a small table and two little chairs for Miss L for $25 at a garage sale. I like the idea of having a place for her to sit, color, play, or have a snack.

I started by painting the columns (while Miss L napped one afternoon) and the door's trim with Dutch Boy's "Ashen". It's an exterior primer/paint in one, and I was pretty impressed with the coverage.
