Who Doesn't LOVE the Christmas Tree Shop?

Now, can you say I was SUPER excited when the Christmas Tree Shop finally opened up near me!!  This store has a little bit of everything at reasonable prices. 

I've been looking for a small kid's table for my room ALL summer.  Every table I found was for tots so when I found this little table I HAD to have it.  How can you beat $40 for a small table and two chairs?

Of course I did a bit of my own artsy work on it.  The chairs before were a navy blue and a bright red.  I sanded them down and painted them to match my room.  I also added the polka-dots to the table.  This will be used during Daily 5 time and I just might buy another one for writing during Daily 5.  I like giving my kids options on moving around the room to work.

Here are the pics!


  1. I absolutely LOVE that store!! It's in the top 5 list of "dangerous" stores according to my husband, right there with Target, Lakeshore, Mardel, and Walmart!!! :) I always thought it was truly a Christmas store but boy was I wrong!!! :)

  2. At first I thought it was a Christmas store too! Love Target. I've never heard of Mardel...maybe a new store for me to fall in love with!!

  3. I have never heard of that store before, so I will have to check it out. Your table/chairs look soooooo awesome!! Just found your blog and became your newest follower.

  4. I've never heard of that store either! Love the polka dots and the colors you chose!

  5. I agree, the CTS is ever bit as dangerous as Target and the Dollar Tree!!! Fortunately, my nearest CTS is 40 minutes away, just far enough that I need a real reason to travel to go there! I can't believe the great furniture they have (I actually bought my living room side tables there and people think they are similar to Pottery Barn ;).) Your tables look awesome!
