Table Makeover and a Freebie

· ·
Gosh, I wish I had taken a before picture of this table!  

A teacher friend let me have it…
just a plain, wooden table that I wanted so that I could put my computer over to the side of my desk (lower)…all I did was spray paint it red (Dollar Store) and then use white  apple barrel paint acrylic to put dots on it.  Too cute, right?  I had to use my camera phone, and I would love for you to overlook the much, much too full garbage can under the table…lol  The key to making great dots on (everything) is to use these:

I found mine in the craft section at Walmart…and I use them on everything. (as you can see)

Anyway, I created this for my kids.  I know a lot of teachers stay away from poems like this, but for those of you that would like this, I thought I’d share.  I plan on letting my kids paint (or color) 5 orange circles on the fence and then decorate the page.
Kids love this poem, acting out with the hand motions =)

Happy Saturday!!


  1. I love this! I always do this poem with my kids, they love it! I also found it online on itunes so I have it on a CD as well.

    I found some small wooden adhesive pumpkins at a craft store and I have enough for my small group of kids to add them to a fence for this poem so we were going to paint the fence. But now I can use your copy to paint orange circles on for my larger group of kids! (I'm not trying to spend a fortune in small wooden pumpkins! 🙂 )

    Thanks for sharing this!
