This is an end table I built for my first child who is set to arrive towards the end of January. The nursery will be decorated in a vintage baseball theme, hints the baseballs. Most designs I found for baseball themed tables were all using bats for legs so I decided to do something different and use old game balls I had from when I played little league and incorporate them into the legs of the table. This was a very fun project and I look forward to finishing up the dresser/ changing table I’m building for him as well!

Very creative & great build. Be sure to post any other items you make for the baseball themed nursery.

If a name hasn’t been chosen yet-maybe Clete (as in Boyer former-Yankee and Brave) would be appropriate?

Thanks for sharing.
