We've had this art table for about 3 years and I just can't wait to get rid of it. I'm not saying I don't like it or we didn't use it but it does seem to collect a lot of toys and trash and junk up the house. Toys that involve organization rarely end up organized because kids are like a tornado through your house. It is helpful to store coloring books and crayons and supplies but you really have to keep up on it and keep it organized because before you know it the sides will be full of Shopkins and things that are not art supplies. We pretty much use the kitchen table for any art just use the table for storage.
