Are your kids drawn to the train table at the bookstore like moths to a flame? It's easy to see why. The low table is a perfect height and the large surface can hold a ton of toys. Before buying a new train table, look around your house to see if you've got the makings of one laying around.
We found this great idea over at Ikea Hacker. It's the ubiquitous IKEA Lack shelf with an interior door affixed to the top. This easily gives a piece of storage furniture an additional use. Attach casters and you can easily move this train table to the center of the room or back against the wall. For more photos, check out IKEA Hacker.
