So Easy - a 5 Yr Old Can Do It


My grandniece wanted to help me paint and I couldn't let her. So I bought her a beat up nightstand from Goodwill for $3.00, flowers for $1.29 and let her do her own project. The particle board top was damaged badly so we covered the worst of the spots with flowers. I think she did a great job.
Finished.  Nice work Lulu.

To cover the damage on the top, she put flowers on with Mod Podge.  (The hardest part is letting her do it herself!)
