Train Storage Table for Kids' Room

What little kid wouldn’t want a super cool train set under their bed just waiting for them to pull it out and play? This project calls for a piece of plywood, a few 1x4s, a play mat, train set, and rolling castors. It comes together pretty quickly and would work in a train-themed room or all on its own.
