Today, I am going to show you how I made a lemonade stand using a $10 thrifted table and some spray paint!
First things first...

Now for the...
DIY LEMONADE STAND
So, I have been wanting to post photos of my lemonade stand for a while now, and today, I finally am! Yes... I made this in May, and it is now July - I have been a little busy!
Everything you see, EVERYTHING, was from DI, with exception of the apron, which was an old curtain I got at Saver's, and the 1x4 side posts, which I had in my garage already.
Wanna see how it all started? I got this table for $10, the plaques for $1 and $2 each, and the drawered shelf for $3. I had a vision!
I took the scrolled piece off the back, and spray painted everything.
Including the 1x4's from my garage,
and the small plaque which I spray painted with chalk paint.
The day I took pictures, it was raining, so I got a few shots in the garage.
Do you like the candy jars? They were all from DI, and I didn't pay more than $1 each. The small ones were $.50. SO CUTE, right? I think they really make the whole thing! Okay, the jug was from Wal-mart, and I made the banner with paper and ribbon I already had... I forgot.
Do you LOVE the apron? Like I mentioned, I made it out of an old curtain I bought from Saver's a long time ago. I love it when I buy something, not knowing why, and then end up using it for something fabulous!
A lemonade stand wouldn't be a lemonade stand without support from our darling neighbors! We love the Giles kids (and ALL our neighbors)!
See the bar stools? They were $5 each at IKEA, and I got 3 of them!
Moral of the blog post is...
You should make your kids a lemonade stand!
They will LOVE it, and it will entertain them for hours! It will be a fun memory, and your kids will think you are awesome! I made the whole thing, start to finish, in one day.
Have a Happy and Creative Day!
