Cork is not environmentally sound. If you care about deforestation issues, anyway.

~ A mini train table could be interesting. Maybe put up a solid back that you paint a scene on (country scene or city scene or whatever would flow in your home). If this piece of furniture means anything to you, setting a new board of some kind on top of the wood opening will prevent damage. You could also paint that to match the scene of the backdrop.

I wish mine had a proper place like that.


Another idea, is to rip out the the back, an upholster the shelf. Then I would move it in front of a window, to create a little reading/window seat for the wee ones.

But you can find cork boards at thrift stores a lot or make one from reused wine corks.

I was actually saving up my own corks for that, but then I found a knitting pattern to turn corks into little gnomes... and I did.

I'd add some cute curtains with a spring rod and use it as toy storage.
