The table pictured above, from Scarlett Scales Antiques, is wrapped in zinc scraps. The father-daughter duo takes well-used tables and covers them to give the pieces a second life. A smart idea to create a place in your home that is virtually indestructible. I want a table like this, where the kids can craft and create to their heart’s content without any worry. The wrapped tables aren’t cheap at around $900 each, but well worth it if you are looking for a long term piece of furniture.
A second option, for those of you who are handy, is to construct your own durable table. From DesignMom, Gabrielle Blair, her Giant Table project is a perfect solution for customizing one to your specific needs. Worth checking out.
