The dreaded Kids Train Table with a new twist
Materials: Lack Shelving Unit, Casters, Interior Door
Description: We had used the Lack shelving unit as a playtable (on it’s side) for our 2 year old twins, because it had the perfect height and lots of storage underneath.
When the kids asked for a train table, I just simply added the caster, for more height (because they had grown) and for the ability to roll it away from the wall so that the kids can play on both side.
When they are done playing, we simply roll it back against the wall to have more space.
I painted a standard door from a Home Improvement store and screwed it to the the top of the Shelving unit, patched and painted the holes. The trainset is not glued to the top, so it can be taken apart and the table can be used for other things: cars, dinosaurs, Lego etc.
