Dr. Seuss Table & Chairs Hand Painted Kids Furniture


My husband and I are big Dr. Seuss fans. My husband loves reading his tongue twisters and I’ve always loved the iconic illustrations. Naturally, we try to foster love for the author in our children. I read them Dr. Seuss almost daily (from our collection of 29 of his books) and when it came time to design a bedroom for my daughter, I seized the opportunity to make Dr. Seuss come alive in our home.

That brings me to this table and chair set of kids furniture. I had been searching Craigslist to find a set for under $20 for six months or so when I came across these at a garage sale. I (secretly) jumped for joy when the woman sold them to me for only $6. I wanted Dr. Seuss furniture for our Dr. Seuss room.
I thought the characters from “Cat in the Hat” would go perfectly on this set with Thing 1 and Thing 2 on each of the two chairs.

I sanded them and began spray painting. When I was done spray painting, I used a roller brush to paint the tops of the table and seats. Then, I hand painted the characters with acrylic wall paint, using black sharpie for the detailing and outlines. This set turned out better than I could have hoped, and it looks great in my kid’s Dr. Seuss room.

    I love seeing how others redo furniture that is tired and worn. This is such a cute idea putting a child's favorite character on the table and chairs. The craft stores sell a variety of decals that can be used and stencils if you are into painting. Another idea would be to make the top of the table a chalk board and put letters and numbers on the chairs. Great job.
