Which table or neither?

Recommended Posts

I think we are nearing the point where we will appreciate a table for schooling. Our school area is very small, and the space is walked through to get to two bedrooms and the bathroom. I have two tables I'm considering.


Option 1:








I would cut down the legs to be child-sized.


Pros: Cost and Size - I think I can fit 2 or 3 kids here while we are working and it would be at the correct height for the kids

Cons: Takes up a lot of space


Option 2:




Pros: Cute, space-saving, 6 storage drawers for pencils and such

Cons: Cost, not child-sized

My rec: Get one that does not have an oak top. Another hardwood or melamine would be better. Oak has a bumpy grain that doesn't completely sand out. That makes it frustrating to write on. Ditto for those light folding tables from Costco. They are great utility tables, but useless to write on.


If you can afford maple, it's probably the best surface. Walnut is also very good. The birch finish from Ikea is also very good, and reasonably priced.
