  • If it has sides, you could drill a few holes in the bottom and use it for an elevated garden bed. Use it to grow herbs or flowers. Good luck!

    I found @Tjustice, I found a Melissa and Doug table with the removable insert and made it a train table/chalkboard/Duplo table. Painted one side with green chalk paint and that side is still a train table. I glued Duplo baseplates to the other side. Added another shelf to the bottom for train and track storage, and the existing drawer holds chalk and blocks. I know this isn't a true repurpose, but I added purpose!

    If you have young children, the table is great for building Legos. Store the Legos in bins under the table. In a large family room, it could become a coffee table with underneath storage baskets or shelves for games.

    My daughter turned my train table into a lego table. Glued lego plates onto top and my grandson loves it. Great use for an unused train table

    I have the same activity table and am looking for some new ideas. I was thinking about putting wood planks over the top and adding hinges so the space could be used for storage. I would love to make it a craft table but have not figured out how to make it taller yet.
