DIY craft table

My daughter loves all things crafty.  Give her some craft supplies and she's a happy girl which makes my school supply loving heart so proud.  I remember as a kid my mom let us pick out a prize at the store and I picked out the clear, brightly colored glue and thought it was the coolest thing ever. :)  So I really wanted to give her a space to create and do school work in the playroom.  I looked for the longest time for a rectangular craft table that wasn't short and would fit two chairs on one side.  It turns out that is a tricky thing to find.  So when I can't find what I'm looking for, I try to DIY it and that's what I did this time.

I have trouble even calling this a DIY because it's so simple.  

I started with this table top.  It's only $9 and it's the perfect size.
Then I purchased this table.  I could have just bought the hairpin legs from Etsy but I found it cheaper to just buy the table and use the legs.

They were fine "as is" but I wanted to paint them gold.  (this is my favorite gold spray paint)  I made a template out of paper to make sure I screwed the legs in the same place in each corner.  I predrilled a small hole where each screw went and then screwed the screws in place. 

These chairs fit perfectly underneath.  They don't slide in all the way but enough to be out of the way.  You could also move the table to the middle of the room and have 2 chairs on either side.  They are a great height too.  Not too short for older kids, but not too tall for little ones.  

This room is a work in progress so I haven't had a chance to share it yet, but hopefully I will get it all finished and photographed soon!
