Whimsy and function

The potato bin that I started with was in a lot worse shape than the one that I  have in the photo. It was missing the lid. I saw the potential thoiugh. I removed the flimsy back and had my husband cut the top off. Then I added a round table top and hand painted in the MacKenzie Childs style using colorful paint. I coordinated the children's chairs in similar style. The drawer on the bottom of the table added storage and it can slide out either way. The little cubby hold in the table pedastal (potato bin) has lots of storage for books, dolls, etc.
