When our friends, the ones whose football wall I featured last April, commissioned me to paint their boys’ train table, I all but jumped at the chance! I thought it would be so cute and fun to take on the project and include some personalized touches!
They had the tracks layout how they liked it, but the cheap cardboard-esque table inlay was just not cutting it. Time for an upgrade!
Michelle’s hubs had a piece of plywood cut to size and traced where all the tracks would go.
Then I set to work!
The only real direction I had was to make it “oudoorsy” and include “Myers Central Station”…
…And then James requested a little Tennessee Neyland Stadium touch. We can do that!!
Since he played some football too, I included his jersey number (#47), worked in on a speedboat…
And their boys needed some love too! A little playground for Cole…
…and a farm for Noah.
And what boys don’t love a campout?! […with an eno hammock, of course! Haha!]
The last thing I added was a house for them… It had a little basketball goal for the boys to shoot on and everything.
…But it just kept nagging at me… So I painted over it and redid it!
With their ACTUAL house, of course, duh! Why didn’t I think of that sooner? The final (and my favorite) touch is this house. I hope the boys love seeing their home on the train table! So fun!
Anyhoo, here’s the final product before the tracks were screwed down. It all turned out! And I hope my friends just love it!
It certainly seems to have been a hit with the younger set, wheeeee! 🙂
