End Table to Kids’ Workbench

“This kids workbench is built on one of those old ugly end tables that probably everyone had in the 90′s.  I originally used it for a base of a train table for my boys but it turned out that they preferred building their tracks on the floor,” explains Heidi at Honeybear Lane.

Heidi found a better way to make use of this sturdy table by turning it into a workbench for her children to enjoy playing and storing their “tools”.   Completed in an afternoon, Heidi used pegboard and scrap lumber leftover from other projects.  She dressed it up with a stenciled, personalized sign that looks like the real deal!  It’s a perfect spot to store kid friendly tools and have a flat surface for imaginary play.  Great idea, Heidi!

  1. Thanks again!!

  2. It is great to see a repurpose for little boys, so often it feels girl-centric. (Did I just make up a word?!)
