Kids Deluxe Art Table: One Step Ahead has Organizing #Solutions!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


He's 8-years-old and still one the best parts of a big item being delivered is the box (our new Kids Deluxe Art Table from One Step Ahead). Mmhmm... I said it, and I love it! :)

This is the bottom of the Kids Deluxe Art Table pre-assembled.
The tray holds your art work while it's drying. Brilliant!

We've got a real organizing challenge around here, most especially with the Legos. My son likes to have several projects running at once, and different little bricks go to different things. Keeping them all organized and in a specific spot can definitely prove space challenging. I don't want to mess with his masterpieces, but I don't want every spot in the house strewn with Legos that could be there for who knows how long until they get used again. One Step Ahead, one of my favorite online stores for finding any and all things related to children, has a solution: The Kids Deluxe Art Table. It's unique and it's fabulous. 

This is the top of the table pre-assembled.
The three recessed cup holders hold supplies (cups included),
and the slot is for a paper roll (paper included).
This is the top of the table. I love the bright colors, they're just cute, cute, cute!! Then, there are three recessed cup holders that hold art supplies or water (for painting), and the slot you see is for a paper roll. The roll hangs under the table and feeds out through the slot. It's a great way to have the table always ready for creativity!! The cups and one roll of paper are included.


It wasn't too hard to put the table together. Everything is pretty self-explanatory, but I still forced myself to read the instructions, so I wouldn't put something on backwards, like I always seem to do (regular readers here know this is the norm for me...so does my family, but they still love and accept me anyway, LOL!). Of course, even with the crystal clear directions, I put something on backwards and had to re-do it (thankfully just one thing, and it was the very first thing I did, so yay !). Believe you me, it's me, not the directions. ;)


The table comes with two benches, again I love the bright colors!! My son got to work on assembling these. 


He's a pro at helping assemble furniture or big items now, and he really enjoys it. He did a pretty great job too, if I do say so myself. :)


Once the benches were finished he moseyed on over to help me put together the main part of the table. While we were working, my son was telling me all of the million things he was going to do with this table once it was put together.

One Step Ahead
If you see this brand, you know the product is going to be awesome!

One Step Ahead, in case you didn't already know, makes these really cute pieces of furniture that more often than not, are totally unique in some way. This table surpasses any other I've seen for so many reasons!
  • The colors! Such cheerful, bright colors are perfect for a child's table
  • Functionability
  • Storage (it comes with 6 bins)
  • Comes with 2 Benches 
  • The Paper Roll that attaches to the table & rolls through the top
  • The drying tray that slides in and out
You'll see as you keep reading, exactly what I mean!



So we spent about a half an hour putting this together, and we were both absolutely delighted to see it when we were finished! This really is the cutest table I've seen.


The tray that pulls out for drying is my absolute favorite feature. We've got quite a few little ones in our family, ranging in age from 1-year-old right on up, so this table is going to get a lot of use. 


Here is a close-up of the end that has the slot for paper. You can see the three cups, one of the two benches, and the built-in slot feed for the paper.


This is how the cups and paper roll (see it behind the cups?) look if you peek your head (or camera) underneath the table.


On the other side of the table is the bin storage, or as my son calls it, the Lego storage. ;) We've reserved a few of these for art supplies, but the rest really are filled with Legos. :)  That's the beauty of this set. You can use the buckets for anything you'd like, or what is practical for you (or if you're 8, you can wear them on your head ;) ). And those colors!! More with the bold, happy coloring!!


This is how the side with the storage containers look when the Kids Deluxe Art Table is all set up (minus the leaf and bicycle tire in the corner. It was a nice day so we decided to build outside). :) Nice, right? That's a lot of storage space for your paints, crayons, markers, etc., and it keeps everything nicely in one place.


This is how the table looks unoccupied when it's finished (freshly assembled, still outside on the patio).
You can gauge the size visually by looking at the pic.
My son is (8), stands 4 ft" and weighs close to 49 lbs.
This is how it looks occupied. You can see it's the perfect size for big kids (my son is (8)...

My sister-in-law with her brother's sweet baby girl.
The table was definitely a huge hit with the little one, and her sweet baby brother too!

And the perfect size for smaller kids too (my niece is 3 and her little bro. is 2-years-old). I know this table it going to get years and years of use. If you're going to make a quality investment this year for the kids' room or work/play area, I definitley recommend this Kids Deluxe Art Table from One Step Ahead. 


Everything your child's art table should be to inspire creativity (while neatly storing art supplies)! Our rugged wood table is big enough for two kids, with two oversized stools, a spacious two-shelf cubby, and a unique, pullout drying rack. Built-in paper holder, too. Extras include six storage bins, 18" paper roll, and three recessed supply cups. Additional art supplies sold separately. 47"L x 32"W x 21"H. 30-minute assembly required. For ages 3 years and up.
