Choo Choo

I am feeling pretty proud of myself right about now.  Due to my lack of artistic talent, this project turned out way better than I was expecting.

We wanted to buy Jax and Ben a train table, but were a little weary because we didn't want to spend $200 on something we weren't sure they would play with.  So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make a cheaper version so that I wouldn't be mad if they didn't play with it every day.  So, after a google search, I found the perfect tutorial to follow.  It was SOOO easy!!  And, it cost me a total of $42 (I did make 3 trips to Hobby Lobby and used the 40% off coupon 3 different times)!

I bought this table for $15 at DI.  It is the sturdiest rock you have ever seen.  So, Jax and Ben can climb all over it without breaking any bones.
And, here she is!!!!!

Now, get yourself to Hobby Lobby STAT and make your own!

Goldie, that is just so cool. I was going ot do that (well not exactly that but make a train table) with a free coffee table I got but instead, painted numbers on it...you can find that on my craft blog.
Anyways, seriously awesome! Way to go!

Goldie, that's awesome! I saw your FB comment and had to check out your blog. I'm sure your boys will be over the moon about the table. Nice going. You are such a cute mom with darling boys.

I love it. I am going to make one. Also, when did Utah get a Hobby Lobby? There was one in Nebraska near us and I loved to go there.

Rebecca said...

Wow I am impressed. Someday if I ever have a boy I will be copying you. Good Job!!

ok, first I don't think you're allowed to claim that you don't have an artistic bone in your body...everything you do turns out amazing.
Like this train table. SO CUTE!
