Autumn Table

For this idea you will need to have a glass table top or a clear vinyl table cloth. I have a glass table top because I have one of those tables with the bead board looking slats on the top, and my kids are little artists and love to draw and play with play dough, and all that stuff. I learned real quick with this table what a pain it was to clean crumbs out of the cracks, so within a week of buying it we bought a piece of glass for about $70 to fit the top.
ANYWAYS...when it's fall, this is one of my kids favorite decorations. We take off the top and scatter fake fall leaves everywhere! We then put the glass back on and have a beautiful autumn table that we get to enjoy through Thanksgiving.

That is a great idea! I don't have a glass top table, but things like this make me wish I did. But I totally understand the pain of cleaning out the cracks in the tables!

Great idea. I'm sending this idea to my dil. She has cracks in their table...and this is soooo cool looking!

This looks fantastic!!!

And YES...I hated the cracks in my old table! The glass was a great idea.

Too cute! I'm sure you could change this every season as well (snowflakes, hearts, etc.) How fun!

I LOVE your table Maria! It's super cute and functional. I'm now wondering how much it might cost to get a large oval piece of glass cut for my table?? I'll have to look into that...

Now I want glass on my table, just so I can stick stuff under it!

I love this!!! We have a glass top table as well -- how do you keep the glass clean!? I don't have any little ones, but my husband manages to put finger prints ALL OVER it!
