DIY craft table for kids

More specifically, an end of the table for my daughter to use her enormous nail polish collection. Or paint. So I sewed a ratty old towel to the end of the table.

We recently bought a new dining room set for dining, so the old table went to the basement for the kids’ crafts. And my sewing machine from time to time.

I was going to use these sheet-holder-in-placers-over-the-corner-of-the-mattress thingies, but the towel was too thick so I had to sew it in place instead.

I used knitting yarn and tied a nice bow around the two front table legs, then a less nice bow through the back of the towel and the posts for the leaf insert.
