Kid's Trestle Play Table and Rolling Cubbies

Submitted by mamamea33 on Wed, 01/29/2014 - 09:36

We have been slowly updating our sunroom and making it a play area for our kids. I built this trestle play table and a couple of rolling cubes to go with it. I still need seating for two more (for playdates and when the grown-ups want to sit) so I'm trying to decide what to do on the other side.

I wanted to use all wood that we already had in the garage, so the top is made from 1x12s connected with pocket holes, and the legs are 2x6s.

In the background you can see the board & batten my husband and I installed a few weeks ago. We also ripped out some moldy carpeting, sanded the concrete and laid vinyl plank flooring. It's coming along!
