Ikea Hack {Rolling Train Table}

This is what our Ikea bookshelves looked like before the transformation.  I have no idea what they are called but we got them a few years ago.

I began by flipping the bookshelf on its side and coating it with some primer.  I also added 3 sets of casters to the bottom.  I started with just 2 sets of casters but because it's so long I added an additional set in the middle.

I painted the top of the bookcase green and then added some blue lakes and some road decals that I got at Target.

Here you can see it in the playroom.  We mounted the other bookcase above train/car table for additional storage.  The blue fabric bins were bought at Target and fit perfectly.  You can see the Ikea hack for Hot Wheels track holder here.

That is so cool! GREAT use of a bookshelf and I love that it's more space-efficient than the commercial train tables. Fantastic job!


Fantastic idea! Looks great! :-)
