With school holidays starting and Christmas rapidly approaching, many of us have little ones running around in need of entertainment. Our Hudson Range of Kids Tables, Chairs and Stools provide the perfect work space for all manner of holiday activities. From colouring and drawing to hobby crafts, building blocks and Lego (or perhaps the perfect setting for a tea party), your children are guaranteed to while away the holiday hours in blissful play.
But just when we thought the Hudson Range couldn’t get any better, we discover some of our clever Mocka fans have different ideas – and we thought we would share them all with you.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Hudson Range hacks
These are the perfect DIY projects for the crafty and creative parent. Keep reading for tips on how to re-vamp, re-jig and just plain re-amazing your Hudson Tables, Chairs and Stools.
Instead of using the table top to place paper on for drawing, why not turn the entire surface into a whiteboard! Simply apply some whiteboard vinyl over the wood table top surface and you now have a glossy, white space that can be scribbled on to your hearts (I mean your child’s hearts) content. And the best thing is, you can simply wipe it away and start again. Jordy May Design (pictured above) sourced her whiteboard vinyl from Vinyl Home.
Magnetic Blackboard Paint
Similar to the whiteboard, a simple application of some magnetic blackboard paint, and not only can you scribble messages to your child, they can spend hours of fun arranging magnets along the surface. Grab a set of word magnets, and you have another tool for your child to learn their letters – and maybe they might craft a table top story just for you!
Grab your paper and scissors and try some decoupage on the Hudson Mini Table and Chairs. A quick search will give you loads of great examples. Add a worldly touch with old maps and blueprints or some superhero action with comic books and cartoons. Not only is this a great way to add interest and colour to a room, the surface is wonderfully hard-wearing.
A very simple way to hack the Hudson range is to get a paint brush and add paint. Colour the stool seats and table tops in white for a lovely Scandi look or go bold with bright colours or pretty pastels. This is the perfect way to tie in the colour theme throughout a room.
