Train Table - Part III

This past Saturday, Evelyn drew where she wanted her river and pond. If you look really hard, you might be able to see her pencil marks . . .
Then we busted out the paint. First, we used sponge paint "brushes" for the river and pond. I did the edges, and Evelyn filled in the rest of the water.

Next, we painted the rest of the table green. Again, I painted around the edges of the river and pond, and Evelyn painted the open spaces.
I did the second coat to ensure good paint coverage.
This morning, once we were sure the paint was really, really dry, we laid down the tracks. Evelyn explained to me that the left side will be a city and the right side will be a farm. Two months after getting a gift certificate to a train hobby store, Evelyn is now ready to spend her $40 on layout accessories!
